The uses of Noriday 28 include: NORIDAY is a birth control pill commonly known as a "progestogen-only" pill or "mini pill". NORIDAY is usually given to women who are unable to take other types of birth control pills (combined oral contraceptives) or use intrauterine devices (IUDs).
It is not known exactly how the "progestogen-only" pill works. However, NORIDAY causes changes to the mucus of the cervix and the lining of the womb and affects the hormonal control system of the body which may all contribute to its effectiveness.
The effectiveness of the "progestogen-only" pill is lower than that of other birth control pills.
If taken according to directions it is expected that if 100 women used the progestogen-only pill for 1 year approximately 4 pregnancies may occur compared to less than 1 pregnancy in women using an oral contraceptive containing an oestrogen and progestogen.
NORIDAY (like all oral contraceptives) is intended to prevent pregnancy. It does not protect against HIV infection (AIDS) and other sexually transmitted diseases.
NORIDAY 28 day is only available on a prescription from your doctor.
This medicine is prescribed for you and should not be given to others.
