What is Noriday?

Noriday is a brand of norethisterone from the American pharmaceutical company Pfizer.

Noriday contains 350 micrograms of the synthetic progestogen norethisterone. It is a progestogen-only contraceptive pill that is highly effective and reliable when taken correctly.

With Prescription Doctor, you can order norethisterone birth control pills online. We offer a private, discreet service which respects your privacy when ordering birth control pills online. If your order is approved before 3pm on a weekday, our UK pharmacy can dispatch your item the same day via next-day delivery. We package all items in two layers of opaque packaging which gives no indication as to what's inside.

How Does Norethisterone Prevent Pregnancy?

There are three ways that norethisterone provides protection from unwanted pregnancy.

Firstly, norethisterone thickens the fluid of the cervix making sperm motility to the womb difficult.

Secondly, norethisterone reduces the thickness of the womb lining. This makes it difficult for an egg to implant itself into the wall of the womb

Finally, the Noriday mini-pill prevents ovulation - the release of an egg from the ovaries.

How Do I Take Norethisterone?

Beginning on the first day of your period, Noriday (Norethisterone) is taken once daily at the same time for as long as the contraception is required.

Upon starting, additional contraceptive measures such as condoms should be used for 7 days, as the maximum contraceptive effect is achieved after this time.

Swallow norethisterone tablets whole with a glass of water.

Do not crush or chew the tablets.

Norethisterone can be taken with or without food, though it may be wise to routinely take it alongside breakfast. This can help you remember to take it at the same time each day.

What should I do if I forget to take norethisterone when I should?

If you miss a dose within 3 hours of the correct time, take the pill you missed immediately and continue regular dosage. In this case you should remain protected.

If you miss a dose by more than 3 hours, take the pill you missed and continue your regular dosage. In this case, you should use additional methods of contraception for 7 days.

If you have any concerns, our doctors are on hand to provide expert one-to-one advice.

What should I do if I accidentally take more norethisterone than I should?

If you accidentally take one more pill than you should, it is unlikely to cause you harm. However, you should contact a doctor immediately if you or someone else swallows a lot of the pills.
