All about Norifam Injectable
« on: April 10, 2013, 01:30:32 pm »

Hi mga mommies,

Anyone here na naka-experience na gumamit ng Norifam, currently using it or may balak na gumamit? Im considering to use kasi this type of injectable to prevent getting pregnant again. Kakapanganak ko pa lang kasi nung december, 4 months pa lang yung baby namin kaya iniiwasan din namin ni bf na mabuntis ako ulit, lalo na na-CS ako nung unang pregnancy ko. Kasi db pag CS na daw nung una, CS na din talaga yung succeeding pregnancies.
Gusto kasi namin ni bf na gawin pa din yung deed pero natatakot kasi talaga kame na baka mabuntis na naman ako, withdrawal lang kasi yung usual na gamit namin.  :-\

Ok ba yung Norifam? wala ba ito side effects or any good effects? Nireseta lang kasi saken to nung doctor namin sa company, almost 200 lang daw ito sa mercury at monthly na contraceptive.

TIA!  :)

Ang lahat ng Hormonal Contraceptives ay...synthetic hormones.  Dumadagdag ito sa natural hormones ng body.  So, kung dahil sa natural hormones mo ay sumasakit ang ulo mo at kung ano-ano pang hassle...pag dinagdagan mo ang hormones mo...asahan mong dadag sakit ng ulo at dagdag sa lahat ng hassle.

"Not tonight, I got a headache..." pero di lang yan...nakakapaekto din ang hormonal contraceptives sa sex drive ("changes in libido")...kaya pwedeng pagmulan ng pag-aaway at di-pagkakatintindihan.

"Side effects: Headache, asthenia, gastric upset, weight changes, nervousness, changes in libido, menstrual irregularities, feeling of tension in breasts, irregular bleeding."

Ang Norifam ay may Estradiol

"Content:   Norethisterone enanthate 50 mg + estradiol valerate 5 mg"

Ang Estradiol ay nasa NuvaRing din.

"Birth-control killed our daughter: Parents vow to continue their fight against NuvaRing makers...."

"The ring slowly releases two hormones into the vaginal wall: ethinyl estradiol, a type of estrogen...."
