What is Micronor?

Micronor is a low dose oral contraceptive that contains progestogen only. The absence of oestrogen means the Micronor pill is usually prescribed to women who can’t tolerate oestrogen, or those who are banned from using it, for example smokers, women over 35 and breastfeeding mothers.

Micronor is over 99% effective and can stop ovulation, which makes it equally as effective as the combined pill, but suitable for a wider range of women and with a reduced risk of developing side effects.

If you think the progestogen-only pill would suit you, because you’ve experience oestrogen-related side effects or you’re not able to use oestrogen, you may be able to buy the Micronor pill online from HealthExpress.eu. We ask all patients to complete a consultation which takes just a few minutes and is reviewed by one of our registered doctors. This ensures we’ve checked our medical history to assess whether Micronor is a safe contraceptive for you to use before we send it to you via free next-day delivery.

What are the benefits of using Micronor?

Micronor can stop ovulation in some women, which makes it equally as effective as the pill but with a reduced risk of developing side effects.

The absence of oestrogen means that more women can use the Micronor pill, such as those over 35, smokers, breastfeeding mothers and women with a history of heart disease and blood clots.

How does Micronor work?

Each Micronor pill contains an artificial progestogen called norethisterone which thickens the cervical mucous so it’s harder for sperm to reach the womb, and stops the womb lining from thickening so a fertilised egg can’t develop, preventing conception.

In some cases the mini-pill can even stop ovulation, the process in which the ovaries expel a mature egg through the fallopian tubes every month, offering added protection for many women.

Who can use it?

The absence of oestrogen means more women can use the mini-pill than the combined pill. However, there are a handful of conditions that can prevent you from taking Micronor. These include undiagnosed, abnormal vaginal bleeding; breast cancer; hereditary blood disorders or liver cancer, for example.

How do you use it?

You need to take a Micronor pill every day. Unlike combined pills, there is no seven-day gap between packs; you must take Micronor every single day. You should take each pill at the same day.

If you forget to take a Micronor pill, you should take it as soon as you remember. If three hours or more have passed, you should continue taking the mini-pill as usual but you’ll need to use another method of contraception for two days, such as a condom, because it won’t be as effective.

Are there any side effects?

Any prescription medication can cause side effects, and Micronor is no different. The lack of oestrogen means you don’t have to worry about developing oestrogen-related side effects. Because Micronor is a hormonal contraceptive, any side effects should become milder with time as your body adjusts to the hormones.

The Micronor pill is known to cause weight changes, skin problems and changes in sex drive, for example.
