Unlike the combined pills for birth control that consist of both estrogen and progesterone, Noriday mini pill consists of only one female sex hormone, progesterone. Noriday norethisterone (the synthetic version of a female sex hormone) makes it difficult for sperm to get inside the womb to fertilise an egg.
Noriday pills are preferred over combined contraceptive pills because of fewer side effects.
It is suitable for women who smoke, women over the age of 35, women with high blood pressure, breastfeeding mothers, and women who cannot take oestrogen.
It is as effective as other combined contraceptive pills.
If taken regularly and correctly, Noriday effectiveness in preventing unwanted pregnancy is 99%. However, if you are experiencing side effects such as diarrhoea or vomiting, you may not be completely protected. In that case, use a condom and continue taking the pill.
Noriday pill works in three ways:
It prevents sperm from entering the womb and fertilising an egg by thickening the fluid around the womb entrance.
It alters womb’s lining so that the fertilised egg does not grow.
It stops the ovaries from releasing an egg.
Noriday typically starts working after seven days of taking a Noriday tablet regularly.
If started on the first day of period, it starts to prevent pregnancy almost immediately. If started on the fourth or fifth day of the period, using condoms for 2 to 3 days after starting Noriday mini pill is important.
You can stop Noriday pills anytime you want to get pregnant. You are most likely to get your period a couple of weeks after stopping it.
The effects of stopping Noriday, though, may be different in different women. For example, women experiencing lighter and less painful periods may start experiencing heavy periods again. Side effects that some women experience when on the pill, may disappear too.
