Frequently Asked Questions

What Is A Progesterone-Only Pill? 

As the name suggests, a progesterone-only pill (POP) contains progestogen; unlike pills containing both progesterone and oestrogen. POPs work by thickening the mucus on the cervix so sperms can’t travel towards the eggs, which helps avoid conception. Additionally, it helps alter the lining of the uterus to lessen the likelihood of accepting a fertilised egg.

Studies suggest that POPs work effectively by 92%. However, regularly taking the pill increases its effectiveness to 99%.

How Does the Noriday Pill Work? 

Just like other POPs, Noriday contraceptive pill works by thickening the mucus on the cervix to prevent sperm penetration. It also alters the endometrium or the innermost lining layer of the uterus, which makes it unfavourable for impregnation. 

Moreover, since Noriday is a POP, it also has some effects on the ovaries. Taking the pill lessens the release of eggs, which helps prevent pregnancy.

Want To Know More About Noriday?

You should always follow the instructions given by your doctor. These instructions also apply when taking Noriday. 

You should take your first pill on the first day of your period. One strip contains 28 pills. You should take the pill that corresponds to the day of the week. For example, if your period starts on Tuesday, you should take the pill on the top row marked “TUE,” and the pill marked “WED” on Wednesday, and so on. You have to swallow the pill whole; avoid crushing or chewing them.

It is essential to take the pill at the same time every day, following the arrows around the strip until you complete taking all 28 pills. After completing the first strip, continue with the second one making sure to take the pill that matches the day of the week. During the first two weeks of taking the pill, it is advisable to use additional non-hormonal birth control methods, such as condoms or a diaphragm with contraceptive gel, but not the rhythm or temperature methods.

You have to repeat this process for as long as required. If you forget to take a pill for one day, do not make up for it by doubling the doses or taking more than one a time. If it has been less than three (3) hours after your original schedule, take the pill immediately, then resume on your original schedule on the next day. Doing so will not change the effectiveness of Noriday in protecting you from becoming pregnant.

You still have to take the pill if you are more than three (3) hours late, but use additional, non-hormonal contraceptive methods in the next 48 hours.

However, if you miss more than two (2), you should immediately stop taking the pills and resume on the first day of your next period using a new strip. Since you are starting again, follow the same instructions and use non-hormonal contraceptive methods for the first two (2) weeks.
