Aygestin (Norethindrone Acetate)

I am new at this, having just had a TAH/BSO/Appendectomy on 2/11 due to endo. I hope some of you ladies can help me.

Due to the endo, my doc doesn't want me to take estrogen for 6 mos. and just put me on Aygestin. I have tried to do research on this, but not really coming up with anything in cement. I feel that pharmaceutical websites don't really tell the whole story. I also read that Aygestin is basically just the pill form of Depo. Is this true? Has anyone taken this drug and had bad side-effects? Does anyone have any alternatives they could suggest for me? I would definitely appreciate it!

I just had a BSO in Dec for endo and cysts. Due to the endo I was put on Aygestin. It did not work well for me because of the effect on my moods. After 2 months, my doctor put me on estrogen. I became very depressed while taking this medication.

I was put on Aygestin prior to my hyst to help stop the bleeding..at the higher dose it stopped the bleeding, but I felt horrible physcially and emotionally..at the lower dose it did not stop the bleeding, but my mood improved..My dr took me off it and told me that I would react to any other progestins the same way..

It is NOT a progesterone that our bodies make..it is synthetic, though you must already know that.
