How does Noriday work?

This contraceptive treatment is a progestogen only mini pill that, when used correctly, offers almost complete protection against pregnancy. The medication works in three separate ways to do this. Firstly, Noriday makes the body think that an egg has already been released. The effect of this is that it may prevent an egg from being released by the ovaries in the first place. Secondly, this medication alters the lining of the womb, which makes it far more difficult for any potential egg to attach itself there and develop. Finally, it increases the thickness of the naturally occurring vaginal liquids, making it very difficult for sperm to enter the womb. This three-stage approach makes Noriday mini pill an effective option for women seeking a hormonal contraceptive method.

What are benefits of Noriday?

As this is a progestogen only treatment, there is a far smaller risk of side effects when compared with some of the combined hormonal contraceptives. Whilst it does not contain oestrogen, it does offer almost the same level of protection. The three-stage approach makes this medication one of the most effective hormonal contraceptive methods available.

Women who would otherwise not be suitable to use a combined contraceptive treatment can use the Noriday pill. It may be suitable for women who are over the age of 35, breast feeding, heavy smokers or by women who are particularly sensitive to oestrogen.

Who can use it?

Noriday can be used by women who are over the age of 18 and want to prevent pregnancy by using a hormonal contraceptive method. This treatment can also be used by women who would not be suitable for a combined contraceptive pill due to a sensitivity of oestrogen. The absence of oestrogen in the Noriday mini pill makes it suitable for women who are breast-feeding, smokers or by women who are over the age of 35.

As with all prescription medications, there are people who are not suitable to use this treatment. You may not be eligible for the Noriday pill if you have a history of irregular vaginal bleeding, strokes or severe cardiovascular issues. When you place your order, you will be required to complete an online medical consultation form. It is very important that you include all the necessary information about your medical history and any medications that you are currently taking. Our doctor will need this information when determining whether Noriday is the right contraceptive method for you.

How do you use Noriday?

You should start taking this treatment on the first day of your period, which will provide you with immediate protection. If you take your first Noriday pill on days 2-5 of your period, you will need to use a barrier contraceptive method for seven days. Once this time period has passed, you will have almost complete protection against pregnancy.

You will need to take one tablet per day for the full length of your cycle. Unlike some of the combined contraceptive pills, there is no break during this treatment. Each Noriday pill will need to be taken within three hours of your usual dosage time. If you miss taking your pill by more than the three-hour window, you will no longer have full protection and you should use a barrier contraceptive method for the following two days.

You should take Noriday with water at the same time every day. You will be provided with a detailed patient leaflet that will give you full instructions on how and when to take this medication. If you miss a dosage, you should refer to this leaflet for instructions on how to resolve the issue. At any point, you can download this leaflet from this web page. You can also contact our customer care team if you need any further advice or assistance.

What are the Noriday side effects?

As this is a progestogen only contraceptive pill, it is generally well tolerated. It can be used by women who may not be suitable for some of the other combined contraceptive pills. The possible side effects for this treatment include decreased libido, weight fluctuations and breast tenderness. These symptoms are very rare and should pass once the body adjusts to the ingredients of this treatment. You should see your doctor if you experience side effects that cause you any significant discomfort.
