What is Micronor?

Micronor is a low dose 28-day oral contraceptive that is highly effective at protecting against pregnancy. It's known as the 'mini-pill' because it is a progestogen only contraceptive (POP). Micronor mini pill does not contain any synthetic oestrogen and is often recommended to women with a low tolerance to the 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.

This Micronor mini pill works in two ways to protect against pregnancy. The artificial progestogen (norethisterone), similar to the natural progestogens produced by the body, is present in this medication. This causes vaginal fluid to thicken, so that sperm cannot pass through the vagina, and enter the womb.[1]

This then ensures that successful fertilisation of an egg is highly unlikely. It also changes the quality of the womb lining (endometrium), so that eggs can't attach themselves and grow.

Also, norethisterone can prevent the release of an egg from the ovaries, however this might not occur in all women who use Micronor.

When used correctly, this method means you have near complete protection against pregnancy.

What are the benefits of the Micronor?

When taking Micronor, you can experience a variety of benefits.

  • 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.
  • Micronor is also 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.
  • This medication can also be used by women who are breastfeeding.
  • Women who cannot take treatments containing oestrogen can take the Micronor pill.
  • Micronor is a highly reliable contraceptive that has shown, in clinical studies, that it may reduce your risk of cancer of the ovary and womb, if used long-term.

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. For more information regarding the precautions for the Micronor mini-pill, please refer to the precautions for Micronor section below.

How to use Micronor?

  1. Micronor should be swallowed with a drink, and taken for the full 28 days of your menstrual cycle, without a break.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. It's recommended that you start taking Micronor on the first day of your menstrual period.
  5. If you begin taking it on a different day, you should use an additional form of non-hormonal birth control (e.g. condoms) for the first 48 hours in order to prevent pregnancy, until the medication has been given enough time to work.
  6. To successfully reduce the risk of pregnancy, it is very important that you take this medication exactly as prescribed by our UK registered doctors.

What are the side effects of Micronor?

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, breast tenderness, bloating, nausea, weight gain, and changes in your sex drive

However, these tend to pass as your body gets used to the hormonal changes.

If you do however experience any unwanted side effects after continual use of this mini pill, then it is advised to speak to your doctor for further advice.

What are the precautions/interacitons for Micronor?

There are a number of precautions that must be considered before taking the Micronor mini pill. These include:

  • Micronor should be used with caution if you have a medical history of blood clots, blood clotting disorders, high blood pressure, cancer (in particular, endometrial or breast cancer), diabetes, or heart problems.
  • Micronor mini pills should be avoided during pregnancy and whilst using hormonal birth control.
  • You should inform your doctor if you are looking to use this treatment when you are due for a surgery, or if you are going to be confined to a seat or bed (e.g. during a flight). This is because the risk of developing a blood clot may increase.
  • The Micronor mini pill won't protect you against sexually transmitted infections (STIs), therefore condoms are still required if this is a risk.
  • This medication can sometimes cause menstrual irregularities, e.g. irregular bleeding or missed periods. These can be irritating, but normally settle down after a while. If you have persistent issues with irregular bleeding, you should talk to a doctor.
