Noriday is a progestogen-only contraceptive pill (POP), also referred to as a ‘mini pill’. It contains 350mcg of a synthetic progesterone called norethisterone. Noriday is 99% effective at preventing pregnancy when taken correctly.
Unlike combined pills, which contain both oestrogen and progestogen, mini pills only contain progestogen. You may be prescribed a mini pill if you are breastfeeding, have certain health conditions, or if you are more likely to experience oestrogen-related side effects.
Norethisterone, the active ingredient in Noriday, thickens cervical mucus, making it harder for sperm to reach an egg. It also thins the lining of the womb, making it more difficult for a fertilised egg to implant into the lining of the womb.
When taking any medication, you should always follow the advice of the prescribing doctor as well as the instructions provided in the patient information leaflet.
Take one tablet every day for 28 days, without a break in between blister packs.
You should start on the first day of your period, which is considered to be the day when bleeding starts. For the first seven days you should also use a barrier method, such as a condom.
It is important that you take the progesterone-only pill at the same time every day. If you are more than three hours late in taking Noriday, you may no longer be protected from pregnancy, and will need to use a barrier method for the next seven days.
If you vomit or are sick soon after taking Noriday, it may not be effective. You should continue to take your pills as normal but use another form of contraception, such as a barrier method, while you are unwell and for the next seven days to ensure you are still protected against pregnancy.
Serious risks associated with taking this medication are rare, but you should always read the patient information leaflet fully before taking any medication.
You should not take Noriday if you have previously had:
Tell your doctor about any other medications or supplements you may be taking, even if they are not prescribed, as some medications may interact with Noriday, putting you at risk of pregnancy.
Contraceptive pills do not protect you from sexually transmitted infections, so it is still important to practise safe sex.
You should not take this medication if you are pregnant or there is a chance you could be pregnant.
If you are going to have an operation, tell your doctor that you are on Noriday, as you may need to discontinue taking it
All medications come with the possibility of side effects, although not everyone will experience them.
Progestogen-only pills typically have lower risks of oestrogen-related side effects, which include headache, breast tenderness, bloating, and nausea.
Possible side effects include:
A complete list of side effects will be detailed in the prescription information leaflet. Talk to your doctor or a pharmacist if you experience any side effects that are particularly long-lasting or severe.
Some women find that their periods stop while on Noriday, or that they are longer or shorter than they were before. This is common when taking the progestogen-only pill, especially during the first few months.
