How to take Noriday

Noriday is a type of progestogen only pill (also known as the ‘mini pill’).

You will need to take one pill every day. There are 28 pills per pack, and you do not take a break between packs. These pills must be taken within the same 3 hour time period each day to be effective. Choose a convenient time in the day to take your first pill, and continue to take it close to that time every day.

What to do if you miss a pill:

If you are less than three hours late, then take the missed pill as soon as you remember and take your next one on time. You do not need to take extra precautions as the pill will still work, and you’ll be protected against pregnancy.

If you are more than three hours late, then take your missed pill as soon as you remember it, take the next one on time and keep taking the pill. You may want to consider emergency contraception. You will not be protected until you have taken two more pills at the correct time and will need to use condoms when you have sex for those two days. You will be able to rely on your pill for contraception again at about the time that you are due to take your third pill.
