I am a 23 year old female, healthy, active, normal weight (130lbs), normal height (5'4"), and normal menstrual cycle. I recently (in September) went to the gynecologist and all my tests were normal. I have had one sexual partner. I am wondering if it would be unhealthy for me to take Norethisterone over my christmas vacation to avoid my menstruation. I am usually very crampy, moody, and nauseous at the beginning of my period and I would love to delay the PMS and worrying about the bleeding. I am not (and have never been) on Birth Control, and I don't plan on starting it in the future.
