Noratindron Pills Pharmaceutical Information | Nortisterone

Noratindron is a form of the female hormone progesterone that is made by humans. This hormone, also called progestin, has several uses; Low doses are used to prevent pregnancy or to treat hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Medium-intensity pills (5 mg), including Aygestin, are used to treat heavy and painful periods, especially if heavy bleeding is associated with a condition called endometriosis. Noratindron tablets (Aygestin) are also used to treat endometriosis. Higher doses are also used to treat some female cancers, such as breast cancer.

In endometriosis, endometrial glands and uterine stroma are seen outside the endometrium and uterus, especially in the pelvis and abdomen. This causes symptoms such as painful and heavy menstrual periods. The goal of noratindron treatment is to reduce pain and bleeding. Noratindron can also be used to treat heavy menstrual bleeding that is not related to endometriosis.
