What is Noriday?

Noriday is a progestogen-only oral contraceptive - commonly known as the 'mini pill' or progestogen-only pill (POP) - and is almost 100% effective at preventing pregnancy[1]. Noriday is taken in the form of a one-a-day 0.35mg tablet over the course of 28 days. As it contains only synthetic progestogen (norethisterone) as an active ingredient, it may be more suitable for women who are likely to develop oestrogen related side effects. It is also a better option for women who are breastfeeding, have regular migraines or who are over 35 and smoke.

How does Noriday work?

The main ingredient norethisterone (0.35 milligrams) prevents pregnancy by thickening the cervical mucus at the neck of the womb (the cervix), so that sperm can't successfully enter the womb via the vagina. Noriday also affects the quality of the womb lining, so if an egg does get released during ovulation, it can't attach itself to the wall of the womb and grow. It's also likely that Noriday tablets can prevent the ovaries from releasing eggs.

Like all mini pills, Noriday contains only the synthetic hormone progestogen and no oestrogen.

What are the benefits of Noriday?

Many mini pill tablets, including Noriday, come with a number of benefits when used correctly...

  • Noriday is a highly effective oral contraceptive that can provide almost complete protection against conception if taken correctly. For immediate protection against conception, it should be taken on the first day of your period.
  • Mini pills such as Noriday are more suitable for breastfeeding mothers, older women and heavy smokers. Itis also a good option if you have experienced an increase in your blood pressure when using the pill.
  • Noriday may also be a better contraceptive for women who have cardiovascular disease.
  • If Noriday is taken immediately after a miscarriage or abortion (within at least 24 weeks) it will immediately protect you against pregnancy.
  • It is possible that Noriday can be taken at any time during your menstrual cycle, but only if your doctor is completely certain that you aren't pregnant. It should also be noted that extra protection might be necessary for the initial two days when taking the pill.
  • If this medication is taken within 21 days of giving birth, you will be immediately protected against pregnancy and won't require additional contraception.

How to take Noriday?

Noriday is a 28-day mini pill, so it is taken for the entire duration of your cycle without any breaks between calendar strips. If you take it on the first day of your period, you will be immediately protected and shouldn't require any other form of contraception. You can take it up to the fifth day of your period, but then you will have to wait seven days for it to take effect. It can be taken with or without food.

If not taken on the first day of your period, use condoms for the following seven days. Take each pill around the same time every day for maximum effectiveness of over 99%. Many women set an alarm to remember their next dose. Each Noriday pill can be easily swallowed with or without drink and food. Store away from direct sunlight and under the temperature of 25°C. Double check the expiry date and patient leaflet regarding use and missed pill if unsure.

What if I miss a pill?

Noriday should be taken at the same time each day, but if you happen to forget to take a pill, you should take it as soon as you remember. Noriday is part of the three-hour pill group of POP pills meaning that if the pill is taken over three hours late, extra contraception will likely be required for the following two days.

How many pills have you missed? How late?
  • One pill less than
    3 hours late
  • Started a new pill pack less than 3 hours late
  • One pill more than
    3 hours late
  • Started a new pill pack more than 3 hours late
  • Two or more pills in one pack
  • One menstrual cycle = 28 days

*If you have missed contraceptive pills in the first one to seven days of the pill pack and have had sex without barrier contraception, you could be pregnant. If you have calculated this between one to five days after the unprotected sex, you could use emergency contraception such as the IUD or morning-after pill. If not, continue your contraception until the seven-day break. If you don't have any bleeding, it is advised to take a pregnancy test and/or consult your doctor.

What are the side effects of Noriday?

There are many variations of the pill and mini pill so you may have to try out a number of oral contraceptives before you find the right one for you. Noriday is usually well tolerated, but some woman will respond differently to the active ingredients. Some of the most common potential side effects such as changes in menstrual bleeding, headaches, weight gain, nausea, and changes in your sex drive

You may experience mild side effects if you are using Noriday for the first time, but they tend to pass as your body adjusts to the hormones. If they persist or you experience any severe side effects, speak to your doctor and consider changing to a different pill. [1]

What are the precautions for Noriday?

Before taking Noriday, there are a number of precautions that should be considered. These are as follows:

  • The Noriday contraceptive pill doesn't protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Therefore, protection (e.g. condoms) during sex may still be required.
  • Menstrual irregularities (e.g. missed periods or irregular bleeding) may often occur when taking Noriday, but normally settle down after a short while. If this occurs, you should contact a doctor or your local GP.
  • Noriday tablets shouldn't be taken by women with abnormal vaginal bleeding, breast cancer (or a history of breast cancer), womb cancer, cervical cancer, vagina cancer or hereditary blood disorders (e.g. acute porphyrias).
  • This medication shouldn't be used if you are allergic to one or more of the ingredients found in Noriday tablets.
  • Noriday shouldn't be taken if you are dealing with a blood clot in a vein, disorders increasing the risk of blood clots, a history of serious artery disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, high cholesterol, liver cancer (or liver problems), stroke, circulation or gallbladder disease.
  • If you are due for a major surgery, involving a long period of immobility, it is recommended that you refrain from using Noriday.
  • If you are pregnant.
