Not sure which Contraception treatment you need?

Micronor is low dose oral contraceptive that's almost 100% effective at protecting against pregnancy. It's known as the 'mini-pill' because it is a progestogen only contraceptive. As it doesn't contain any synthetic oestrogen, it is often recommended to women who don't have a high tolerance of this hormone or to women who are breastfeeding. It may also be a more suitable choice for older women, smokers, and sufferers of heart disease and blood clots.

The Micronor mini-pill can be ordered securely online from HealthExpress after you complete an online consultation form. This confidential consultation from provides us with enough information so that our doctors can evaluate your suitability to the medication of your choice.

What are the benefits of using the Micronor mini pill?

Micronor mini-pills can provide you with instant protection against pregnancy if taken just after ovulation, on the first day of your period. If taken later, they will take seven days to become active.

Mini-pills contain no synthetic oestrogen, which makes them ideal for women who cannot take pills containing this hormone. It may also be a better choice for older women, smokers, sufferers of heart disease and blood clots, as well as those whose blood pressure may have risen whilst taking oral contraception. They can also be used by women who are breastfeeding.

How does it work?

This Micronor mini-pill works in two ways to protect against pregnancy. The artificial progestogen (norethisterone) present in this medication causes vaginal fluid to thicken so that sperm cannot enter the womb. It also changes the womb lining so that eggs can't attach themselves and grow.

Who can take Micronor?

Micronor is available to order if you are 18 years or older. You should preferably not order this treatment if you have diabetes, have or have had cancer in the past, liver disease, migraines or unexplained vaginal bleeding. This contraceptive should under no circumstances be used if you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant.

If you have any other health conditions that are not mentioned in the above list, take care to mention it in your consultation as we would like to ensure that the treatment you have chosen is safe for you to use. It's important that you mention in your consultation if you are currently using any medication, herbal or prescription, as some medications can inhibit how effective Micronor is.

How do you take it?

Micronor should be taken for the full 28 days of your menstrual cycle, without a break. Micronor, like most of the other oral contraceptives, comes in a calendar pack to help you keep track of when you are due to start a new course. You should preferably take it at the same time each day, because if you take it more than three hours late, it may be less effective.

Are there any side effects?

Micronor mini-pills generally don't cause many side effects and many people don't experience any when they use this treatment. Some side effects you could experience are headaches, migraines, nausea and changes in weight and your sex drive; however, these tend to pass as your body gets used to the hormonal changes.
