How does Norethisterone work?
The prescription medication Norethisterone, contains a synthetic version of the female sex hormone progestogen. Progestogen occurs naturally in the body where it plays a key role during the menstrual cycle.
Leading up to your period, the progestogen hormone levels fall and the uterus lining sheds as a menstrual bleed. Novethisterone copies the actions of the natural produced hormone and will help keep the hormone levels high preventing the shed, this helps delay the onset of your menstrual cycle.
How do I take Norethisterone?
Norethisterone is a period delay tablet and is taken a few days before you are expecting your period to begin. It is a progestogen-type hormone that works to delay your period by influencing the balance of the female’s hormones oestrogen and progestogen that occurs naturally in the body.
The additional hormone dosage upsets the balance, causing your period to be delayed until the extra hormones are removed. When you take Norethisterone you can delay the period by days or even weeks.
Most medications have side effects associated with taking them. Remember not all women will suffer from side effects and sometimes they may only have them during the initial stages of taking a new medication and only last 1-2 weeks.
- Stomach aches
- Tender breasts
- Weight gain
- High blood sugar

This is a very simple process in which you fill in a few simple health questions to be approved for the medication. Once you have been approved the medication will be sent out to you within 24 hours.

The doctor prescribed me this birth control about 20 months ago so it wouldn’t effect my breast milk. Overall, I love this pill! I didn’t start my 1st cycle until my baby was almost 15 months old due to breastfeeding. You must take Camila around the same time every day within a 3 hour period. Now, if I was past that window time by several hours, I did have an actual period between cycles. That has happened to me twice. I take the blame because I was late taking the pill by 9-10 hours each time and that is an actual side effect that I read happens if you end up taken it late. If I take it around the same time each day, I have no issues. My periods are now on an average 3 days a month instead of 4-5 and are much lighter. I have lost 20 lbs since Nov from only dieting. My cramps no longer require me to pop ibuprofen like they are M&Ms and I hardly feel any pain. My sex drive has remained the same but I did notice that I am dryer when I’m intimate. Buy some lube and problem solved ;) .

I’ve been in all different kinds of birth control since I was 14. They have all had horrible side effects. I started this BC after having my first daughter because I was breastfeeding. I have never experienced a single side effect. Due to insurance issues I wasn’t able to get this specific one and they switched me to “the same formula just a different brand” it was a no go!! I had mood swings and severe depression instantly. I only took it for like a month. Anyways, got insurance all sorted out and was able to get jensycla again. No joke guys my depression has actually IMRPOVED since being back on this mini pill. And still no side effects. I’ve been taking it for about 1.5 years total with a small 3 month break. 10/10 would recommend.

Went to the doc for horrific periods, fatigue and bleeding thru heaviest available pad within an hour days 2-3 of my seven days. I was a smoker, went w/ progestin due to risk of blood clots. I started pills 1 day after my period ended. So day 26 I started having brown/bloody discharge, not so much spotting, today is day 27 and I have started my period… I think. Again more of a heavy discharge. The first week I went absolutely nuts, very angry, sensitive, dizzy or disoriented first half of the day and afraid to drive, my depth perception was off. I cried the first two days no reason. Experimented with times and I’m not sure if it was just my body acclimating to it or if it was finally finding the right time to take, but it went away. I have since quit smoking & taking vitamins watching what I eat and indoor cycling for a half an hour a day. I have lost weight and mood has stabilized, I even did well during my nicotine withdrawals. It’s worth noting I suffer from anxiety already.

This is my first time on BC and specifically this one because I cannot take a combined pill due to clotting issues. This pill has been great! No prolonged bleeding, normal periods for the last four months. This is my fifth month on it and I am only spotting which I am happy about. No weight gain, no acne, nothing. I’m extremely active (workout 5-6x a week) and I haven’t noticed any weight gain, in fact I’ve lost weight. No increased hunger. This pill has worked great for me. Don’t blame pre-existing conditions on this pill. It’s a safe alternative.

I’ve been on camila for 2 years. I switched from the combination pills since they were giving me morning sickness every week after the placebo. On Camila, my periods are lighter and take the same amount of time (7 days). I usually get my period every 45 or so days on the pill. If I miss a pill, I can guarantee I’ll have my period again within 2 weeks (sometimes I skip a pill on purpose if I’m planning a trip). As far as remembering when to take them, I just set an alarm on my phone and take it when it yells at me. I don’t think I’ve had any weight gain as a result of camila, just simply me getting lazy and not exercising. The reason I’ve decided to stop taking the pills is I have little to no sex drive. It’s driving my husband bonkers. Otherwise, I think all of these women with these horror stories should go see the doctor…

I used to be on birth control for years to inhibit growth of ovarian cysts. I stopped and was off pills for 6 years. Unfortunately I am still very fertile and as a single mom in a committed relationship I did not want to have more children especially since I will be 40 next year. I decided to try the mini pill to avoid effects of estrogen. This worked in that I didn’t get pregnant while on it but it caused me pretty much every side effect. I developed acne on my face, my mood swings were crazy and very negative, my appetite greatly increased and I gained weight, I no longer had natural lubrication since my vagina became very dry, I noticed an obvious decrease in libido, and my breasts became very sore and tender the whole time on the pill. I did experience some very light spotting but I wouldn’t have a problem with that if it weren’t for the other symptoms. Unfortunately I’ll have to resort to another method of birth control. I had high hopes for this pill.

Lyza has been a very good first pill. I looked up this forum right when I got the pill and started freaking out, but honestly it’s different for everyone. For the first months, my emotions were all over the place, and I was kinda going out insane and crying a lot. Then I had a bit of annoying spotting for around 3 months. But honestly it was super manageable and it’s gone now. My periods went from 8 days and very heavy cramping, to 3 and basically only a teensy bit of pain the first day. Pregnancy wise, I’m five months in and not pregnant, waiting on my period right now actually. I have noticed some weight gain, but most of it has gone to my boobs and thighs, I’ve been going to the gym a lot so some of it’s muscle. Just remember pills are different for everyone, and for me this was a very good stepping stone.

Lady Swindells –
I started taking this 6 weeks Post partum, I don’t feel much different emotionally, but I’m a big cry baby all the time. I haven’t gained any weight, I haven’t seen any skin changes. The hardest part about it is remembering to take it at the same exact time every single day. I do feel a bit more tired but I just had my 3rd child and she is 3 months now so I’m just a zombie mom now. Breast feeding has helped me to continue to lose baby weight. I don’t feel any hungrier, if anything I have a decreased appetite and have noticed some nausea, but hey, it’s progesterone you’re gonna get nauseous sometimes. I pretty much live off progesterone since I had to have the weekly injections my whole pregnancy so I don’t remember life without being pumped full of hormones. Hahaha honestly it’s worth not getting pregnant again.

I tried multiple combo birth control pills and an IUD which all ended terribly. My doctor and I decided maybe it was best that I took a progestin only pill because of how I reacted to birth control with estrogen. I both love and hate this prescription but if you do have issues taking estrogen then I highly recommend you give camila a shot. Yes, you do have to take it around the same time everyday. My hair does fall out more than usual and I do get almost like morning sickness before my periods. However, all of the positive outweighs the negatives. I used to have extreme cramping and I would get extremely sick every single period, with this pill I get a little sick before but my periods are more bearable. It does not effect my weight at all, maybe my sex drive a little but you learn to work with it. Overall, I do recommend you give it a shot as every woman experiences different things when trying different birth controls.

I’ve been on Lyza for about 2 weeks now and it’s been fantastic no noticeable emotional changes aside from crying once to a goo goo dolls song (possibly from lack of sleep) but I honestly feel great. I’m really happy on this pill. Other pills I have been on in the past have worsened my depression to the point the I just stopped taking birth control for over a year and a half. Another perk is my boobs are noticeable bigger already!
