“The best one I've tried”

Less migraines, no PMT

Having to take one every day with no break

I feel like I'm quite an "expert" on contraceptive pills, after having tried three different varieties in the last 10 years or so. I'm now on Noriday, after first starting off on Marvelon, then when that one was on the "danger list" about 3 years ago, coming off that and taking a different one...

No migraines

causes spots at first

I have tried so many methods of contraception and have at last, 2 children later, decided on Noriday (Norethisterone). Because this is whats known as the mini pill or POP (progesterone only pill) you take one tablet every day at almost exactly the same time. It can cause skin outbreaks at first...

Noriday is my first experience with the mini-pill (a contraceptive pill that contains only one hormone, unlike the more usually prescribed 'combined pill'). My GP would not prescribe me a combined pill because I am over the age of 35 and smoke - but it seems that mini-pill is less dangerous for...

I'll start with a quick contraceptive history. First I was put on Microgynon, a combined pill, and nobody told me that it could kill me. It turns out that sythetic oestrogen causes strokes in those who suffer from migraines with aura. I suffer from migraines with aura, and I feel that I should...

Not for me

published 18/11/2008

Well at least I'm not pregnant yet so it can't be that bad right?? WRONG! I now have three periods a month, full blown bleeding, with cramps and headaches every time. I have horrible skin now and after taking this for 3 months I expected some of the effects to die down a little but they haven't.

I just moved to NZ from the states and had previously been on some form of the combined pill consistently for about three years without any major problems (i.e., spotting, acne, mood swings or any of that nasty stuff) but I occasionally get migraines (no big, I'd say once every two months-ish) So...

I found little to no side effects.

Only three hours leeway for a missed pill.

Having fought with three different combined pills over the course of two years, I had despaired of ever being able to take hormonal contraception. However after the first month on Noriday (When I had a little breakthrough bleeding) Everything was quite honestly brilliant with no side effects and...

You should have your blood sugar checked when on Noriday, as I found out to my cost this pill can cause high blood sugar!! So check your blood pressure and blood sugar regular - as I was not warned or ever checked, and I have pre diabetes. This pill should be banned!
