Does anyone take Notheristerone tablets? Watch
Also, what exactly are their function? Only the Doctor didn't actually explain.
you were asking about their function,
they aren't the pill so remember to be careful! they basically just stop your body from makin some hormone which makes you have your period.
I don't know about taking them for more than 3 weeks, I've doubled up on them before like taken 6 tablets instead of 3 in a day because I came on early (dr said it was fine b4 anyone starts!)
personally I'd ring your dr and just ask if you can take it for X amount of weeks...
as for how it works, well from my (limited) knowledge of the menstrual cycle i'd guess that it maintains high levels of the hormone which would naturally drop to cause a period. so when you stop taking it, after a few days the hormone level drops and the period comes.
if it recommends only taking them for 3 weeks you should stick to that unless advised otherwise by your doctor. you certainly shouldn't constantly take them to avoid periods altogether, just the same as with the pill - your body does need to have periods and loading your body with hormones can't be good.
Bumping for more opinions on this, please.
if you feel scared just have a look at all the side effects you can get from them, I'm pretty sure these will all be increased with continuous taking of them! and you can get blood clots by taking these tablets for long amounts of time!
