Regelle (Norethisterone 5 mg)

Description and Indication

Regelle is an oral contraceptive pill containing the active ingredient Norethisterone, which is used in some combined oral contraceptive pills and in some Progestogen-only pills. It can be used in treatment of premenstrual syndrome, painful periods, abnormal heavy bleeding, irregular periods, menopausal syndrome (in combination with estrogen), or to postpone a period.

Norethisterone is a synthetic form of the naturally occurring female sex hormone, progesterone. The progesterone-only pill acts by affecting the natural mucus at the neck of the womb.

Norethisterone increases the thickness of this mucus so that it is more difficult for sperm to cross from the vagina into the womb. For further details on Norethisterone, including interaction with other drugs, click Norethisterone
