This is Dr. Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
This is indeed frustrating.
Norethindrone is a progesterone
and that resolved your issue.
So you are likely progesterone deficient.
This happens when you do not ovulate well.Ovulation
results in corpus luteum formation which produces progesterone.
So you have more estrogen
and low progesterone.
This imbalance exists even at age 47.
So you experienced the symptoms.
Now, this may not be a long lasting problem since you are in perimenopausal age.
But this cannot be predicted.
In case the symptoms are persistent, you will likely need to go back to norethindrone.
And a pelvic ultrasound also should be done to rule out any endometrial hyperplasia
