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

*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.
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.
