Not sure which Contraception treatment you need?
What is Noriday?
Noriday is a mini-pill that contains progestogen only. Itís over 99% effective in protecting against pregnancy, which means itís just as effective as the combined pill. The Noriday pill can even stop ovulation in some women who take it.
The absence of oestrogen makes it an appropriate contraceptive for women who have developed oestrogen-related side effects when using the combined pill. This mini-pill can also be used by women who canít take the combined pill, such as those who smoke, are over 35 or are breastfeeding.
If you think Noriday would be a suitable pill for you, you may be able to buy it online from HealthExpress.eu. We ask all patients to complete a quick consultation which will be reviewed by a registered doctor who can assess if this is safe for you to use.
What are the benefits of Noriday?
Noriday is known to help ease PMS symptoms. Another benefit of the mini-pill is that it can be taken by a greater population of women than the combined pill because it doesnít contain oestrogen. This means women prevented from using oestrogen, such as those breastfeeding, over 35 or smokers, can use the mini pill.
The absence of oestrogen also reduces the risk of develop oestrogen-related side effects, such as water retention and headaches.
How does it work?
Each Noriday pill contains a synthetic progestogen called norethisterone. This stops conception in three ways: it thickens the cervical mucous so itís harder for sperm to reach the womb and it prevents the womb lining from thickening so an egg canít develop.
In some women, Noriday will stop them from ovulating. This is the process with which the ovaries expel an egg down the fallopian tubes and into the womb. Preventing this means thereís nothing for the sperm to fertilise.
Who can use Noriday?
If youíre over 18 you may be able to buy Noriday online; however, certain conditions may make it unsafe for you to use the Noriday pill, in which case you wonít be given a prescription. These include undiagnosed, abnormal vaginal bleeding; history of a stroke; existing circulation problems or a history of a heart attack.
If you canít use oestrogen, because youíre over 35, you smoke, youíre breastfeeding or you have a history of blood clots, for example, the Noriday pill may suit you better.
How do you take it?
You will need to take a Noriday pill every single day because, unlike with the combined pill, there is no seven-day break from taking this kind of contraceptive pill.
If you forget to take a pill, and more than three hours have passed, you will no longer be protected against pregnancy. This means youíll need to use a condom or other barrier contraceptive for two days, and continue with the Noriday pill pack as usual.
Are there any side effects?
The absence of oestrogen means the risk of reducing certain side effects, such as breast tenderness and water retention, is greatly reduced. However, you can still develop side effects when using Noriday pills, including weight changes, skin problems and changes in your sex drive. The uncommon side effects of Noriday include nervousness, dizziness and depression.
Itís essential that you discuss your medical history with a doctor, so they can make an informed decision about whether it is safe for you to buy Noriday. If they decide it isnít, they might prescribe you another contraceptive method.
