Noriday mini pill prescription available to buy online

Noriday is a mini-pill that only contains a synthetic progestogen called norethisterone. These pills work in similar ways to combined pills and are almost as effective. This mini-pill is an appropriate contraceptive for women who have developed oestrogen-related side effects when using the combined pill, or women who can’t use the combined pill because they smoke, are over 35 or are breastfeeding.

Noriday Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits?

Noriday doesn't contain oestrogen, which means more it won't cause oestrogen-related side effects like water retention or headaches. These pills are proven to alleviate PMS symptoms.

A wider range of women can use this mini-pill because it doesn't contain oestrogen. This means that women who are prevented from using oestrogen, such as those breastfeeding, over 35 or smokers, can use the mini-pill.

How does it work?

Noriday pills stop conception in at least two ways: they thicken the cervical mucus so it's harder for sperm to reach the womb and they prevent the womb lining from thickening so an egg can't develop.

This contraceptive can even stop some women from ovulating. This is the process with which the ovaries expel an egg down the fallopian tubes and into the womb, which means there's nothing for sperm to fertilise. It's this process that makes it equally as effective as the combined pill.

Who can take Noriday?

If you're over 18 you may be able to buy Noriday pills online, including if you're over 35, if you smoke or if you're breastfeeding.

A historic or existing case of certain conditions may make it unsafe for you to use this contraceptive. These include undiagnosed, abnormal vaginal bleeding; a stroke; circulation problems or a heart attack.

Some medication can make Noriday less effective. It's essential that you discuss your medical history and any medication you're using with a doctor, so they can make an informed decision about whether it is safe for you to buy this mini-pill. If they decide it isn't, they might recommend another contraceptive method.

How do you take it?

It's important that you take one of your Noriday pills every day at the same time. That's because taking a pill three hours late can stop it from working effectively.

If three hours or more have passed since you should have taken your last Noriday pill, you will no longer be protected against pregnancy. You will need to use a condom or other barrier contraceptive for two days, and continue taking Noriday pills as usual.

Are there any side effects?

Noriday is known to cause weight changes, dizziness, increased hair growth, changes to libido and increased fibroids. However, the absence of oestrogen means that the risk of reducing certain side effects, such as breast tenderness and water retention, is reduced.

How can I buy Noriday online?

If you want to buy Noriday pills online, you'll need to complete a consultation so one of our registered doctors can look at your medical history and assess whether it's safe for you to use this medication. If they decide that this mini-pill is a good match for you, they will write you a prescription. This will be sent to our registered pharmacy, which will dispense your contraceptive pills and send them to you with free delivery.
