Not cleared for estrogen, only Norethindrone

Can any one help?

I had a TLVH and BSO 2 weeks ago. I thought I would be cleared for HRT but the oncologist recommended only progesterone. In fact, Norethindrone, it is oral. I take it at night to decrease hot flashes.

Does any one have any experience with this?

By the way I am 40 years old.

Thank you sisters!

Re: Not cleared for estrogen, only Norethindrone

I was on Norethindrone for 3 months postop because I had endometriosis and the surgeon wanted to be sure all of the endometriosis was gone. After 3 months, I started a low dose of estrogen. I did not have cancer. I am not sure what your situation is but progestins are usually used to treat estrogen related problems. I felt great on the progestin actually. My sex drive was never better than it was that 3 months!

Thank you Carol. I may have to take it for 10 years.

Did you have any of the side effects that the pharmacy lists?

Re: Not cleared for estrogen, only Norethindrone

I have been on the 5mg Norethindrone for about 2 months & have noticed that I can't breathe without a smothering feeling. I stopped taking it last week & called my doctor. I had been monitoring myself for a few weeks and it had gradually gotten worse. I stopped it & then took a half of one 3 days later. The chest tightness came back so now I have stopped taking it completely. It was a huge help for my hot flashes & that was a blessing.
