Primolut N & miscarriage

I have been prescribed primolut N for irregular bleeding, I had a miscarriage earlier this year and reading the leaflet it says not to take this medication if you have had a miscarriage... now I'm not sure what to do and have conflicting opinions from doctors, one says its ok, one says no!

Primolut N & miscarriage

Hi there I'm not sure why you were given a contraceptive if you are trying to fall pregnant. All contraceptives can help irregular bleeding by forcing the cycle into 28 days. The bleeding is not a normal period but is brought on by the drop in the progestin level. In the case of primolut N it's norethisterone, the first oral progestin to be made. If you are trying to fall pregnant progesterone would be preferable, as it's vital for pregnancy, and can regulate a cycle too. For more info please see How to use progesterone cream. And if you are wishing to fall pregnant, please see our page on Pregnancy. Take care Wray
