This medication is what is commonly referred to as a mini pill, which means that it only contains progestogen. This means that it can be used by a wider range of women in comparison to combined contraceptives, specifically women who may be sensitive to oestrogen or who are unable to use a combined contraceptive due to certain risk criteria.
As a mini-pill, it is a very effective contraceptive treatment for preventing pregnancy. The active ingredient in this treatment is norethisterone, which is a synthetic form of progestogen. Norethisterone increases the thickness of the natural mucus at the neck of the womb (cervix). This makes it more difficult for sperm to cross from the vagina into the womb. By preventing sperm from entering the womb, Micronor significantly decreases the chance of successful fertilisation of an egg occurring.
Micronor also changes the quality of the womb lining. It is on the womb lining that any fertilised eggs would attach and develop. By altering it in this way, this medication prevents any eggs that have been fertilised from successfully implanting on the wall of the womb.
As this treatment is oestrogen free, women who may not suitable for a combined contraceptive are able to use it. Micronor has a very high rate of success, offering women almost 100% protection against pregnancy. This makes it one of the most effective hormonal contraceptive methods available.
Micronor can be used to treat women who are suffering from heavy and painful bleeds. This medication is known to make periods lighter and, as a result, it can be prescribed for women who are experiencing this.
Most healthy women over the age of 18 can use Micronor as a contraceptive method. As it does not contain oestrogen, some women who would not be suitable for some of the other contraceptive pills are also able to use it. It can be used by women who may be sensitive to oestrogen, breastfeeding, over the age of 35 or who are heavy smokers.
It may not be suitable for you to use Micronor if you have certain health conditions. These include severe diabetes, heart problems, liver disease, unexplained vaginal bleeding or high blood pressure. If you suffer from any of these conditions, you should consult with your doctor before deciding to use Micronor.
