    Yes... I've been on it for several years. Am also on noriday but ended up having constant periods...was lucky to have a few days a month ok. I could not take the 3 week contraception pill as the week I was pill free I would get the worse ever migraines and throw up constantly for 10 hours at a time! So took noriday and that settled but wasn't strong enough took northisterone as well but it stopped working. Finally insisted on having tibolone. I was about 48 at the time....was great ended up only having period around every 3 months and only for 5 days. Just recently it's been 6 months and counting so hopefully if I'm period free for the next 6 months I can stop the noriday.

    Down side is I put a lot of weight around 3 stone. Hopefully this will go after I don't need the pills as have always been thin! There is a small amount of the same drug in noriday in the tibolone but not enough to stop pregnancy. But couldn't live with constant bleeding!

    I don't have much experience with tibolone , but I've been prescribed it today , along with a prostat 3 injection that I will be having monthly. I haven't had a period since November 2015 due to having a cervical ablation. Have you had many side effects from it?

      Don't know about the injections but I did have the depo injections for a while. Unfortunately it completely knocked my endocrine system out! They didn't work either. The tibolone works great but put a load of weight on. Some of my friends said it gave them a new lease of life but I haven't noticed that!
