What is Primolut N?
Primolut N is a medication that’s used to mitigate negative side effects from your period. These include heavy or irregular periods, pain, and premenstrual syndrome (PMS). It can also be used to delay your period if you have a special event planned.
Heavy and painful periods are inconvenient at best. In some cases, they can prevent you from participating in activities that are part of your routine. They are caused by hormone imbalances, fibroids, cancer, and other conditions.
How does Primolut N work?
The active ingredient in Primolut N is norethisterone, which is a derivative of the hormone progesterone. It’s a synthetic form of a hormone that is a normal part of the menstrual cycle.
Norethisterone can provide relief from heavy and painful periods because it mimics the naturally occurring progesterone in your body. It can prevent your uterine lining from building up as much each month, reducing the amount your body needs to expel each month during your period. As a result, it also decreases the need for the muscle contractions that cause pain when they loosen the thickened endometrium in your uterus during your period.
What doses of Primolut N are there?
Primolut N is available in only one dose containing 5 mg of norethisterone BP. If it isn’t providing adequate relief for your period symptoms, you should sign in to your account and send our clinician a message. They may suggest another treatment that will work better for you.
