Description for Noriday Tablets

Progestogen-only contraceptive pills, like Noriday, contain progestogens but not oestrogens. They help to make it harder for the sperm to penetrate the womb by thickening the cervical mucus. Some can also help to stop ovulation depending on the type of progestogen they contain. If taken correctly they are over 99% successful at preventing pregnancy.

 

Product Information

  • Age: 18 years +

    Maximum per order: 2

  • Pregnancy: Not suitable

    Breastfeeding: Not suitable

Noriday is a progesterone-only oral contraceptive pill. Its active ingredient is norethisterone, a synthetic version of the female sex hormone progesterone. Combined contraceptive pills contain a form of oestrogen, whereas progesterone-only pills such as Noriday can be used by women who cannot take oestrogen. This includes women who are breastfeeding or who suffer from regular migraines. If used correctly, Noriday is over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy.

If you have been prescribed Noriday, repeat supplies can be purchased online from The Independent Pharmacy, following a simple medical questionnaire. One of our doctors will review your order on the same working day – if they deem that Noriday is suitable for you, your order will be with you as soon as the next working day.

Pregnancy occurs when an egg released from the ovaries is fertilised by sperm. Noriday increases progesterone levels in such a way that thickens the fluid in the cervix, preventing sperm from entering the womb and fertilising any eggs which are released.  It can also prevent ovulation from occurring, though it does not do so as consistently as combined contraceptive pills.

There are 28 tablets in each pack of Noriday. There is no interval in this treatment cycle – take the first pill of your next pack the day after finishing the first.

Noriday can cause side effects such as acne, breast tenderness, mood swings or weight gain. These normally occur for the first few months and should then subside.

If possible, begin taking Noriday on the first day of your period - if you begin taking the Pill in the first five days of your cycle, you will be immediately protected from pregnancy. Take one pill at the same time each day.

There are 28 tablets in each pack of Noriday. There is no interval in this treatment cycle – take the first pill of your next pack the day after finishing the first.

If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember, even if it is nearly time for your next pill. If it is less than three hours after you were meant to take that pill, you should still be protected from pregnancy. If more than three hours have passed, you are advised to use additional contraception for the following two days.

Not everyone will experience side effects when they take Noriday, however if you do they may include:

Headaches, upset stomach, change in libido, change in weight, breast pain or swelling, migraines, gall stones, rash, anxiety, fatigue, irregular periods, high blood pressure, depression

If you are concerned about these effects, or if the product affects you in any other way, stop using it and talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

Reading the following warnings carefully will help to ensure you are selecting an appropriate product.

  • An allergy to any of the ingredients of Noriday
  • Ever had cancer of the cervix, vagina, uterus or breast
  • A history of liver disease
  • Inflamed veins
  • Blood clots
  • Heart disease
  • A history of stroke
  • Problems with lipid metabolism

  • Migraines
  • Heart problems

Do not use Noriday if you have breast cancer, or if you have had it before. Long-term use of hormonal contraceptives may slightly increase your chance of developing breast cancer. Once you have stopped using the Pill for at least 10 years, your risk levels will come back down. Women who are elderly and/or overweight are more vulnerable to breast cancer. Take care using Noriday if a close relative has suffered from breast cancer before. Check your breasts and nipples regularly for any changes or lumps. If you notice anything abnormal, visit your doctor as soon as you can.

You may be more susceptible to blood clots while taking Noriday, especially during the first year of use. Talk to your GP before having any operation while taking the Pill. You may need to stop using Noriday in advance of the operation to avoid the increased risk of a blood clot. You are also at a heightened risk of developing a blood clot if you:

  • Smoke
  • Are obese
  • Have a family history of blood clots
  • Do not exercise regularly
  • Have had a miscarriage in the past
  • Have recently given birth

Noriday may increase your chance of developing cervical cancer. For this reason, you should have regular smear tests while taking the Pill.

If you require any blood test, inform your doctor of which medicines you are taking – Noriday may alter the results of some blood tests.

The following medicines may impact the effectiveness of Noriday:

  • Epilepsy medicines (e.g. phenytoin, carbamazepine)
  • HIV medicines (e.g. nelfinavir, ritonavir)
  • Certain antibiotics (e.g. rifabutin, rifampicin)
  • Griseofulvin
  • St John’s Wort
  • Modafinil

Noriday may impact the effectiveness of corticosteroids such as prednisone or cloprednol.

Please read all packaging and the Product Information Leaflet before taking any new medicine and inform your doctor of medicines you are taking or intend to take.

350mcg norethisterone
