Progesterone pills increased my fibroid

by Aanchal

I was diagnosed with intramural fibroid 3cm in sept 2019. I was having heavy bleeding and it was in April 2020 I decided to have norethisterone tablets to control my bleeding. Before starting the pills my fibroid was 3cm.and now just in few months, my fibroid became 6cm now. And I am having very large clots, suddenly my fibroid grew double the size after I started these progesterone pills.

Hello Aanchal,

Norethisterone is not progesterone, it is a progestin, this could definitely contribute to your fibroid growth as it is an estrogen you are taking not progesterone.

Please read this page on progesterone misconceptions as it will help explain the difference between progestins and progesterone and please also watch this video

Wishing you well!
