No Prescription

For the most effective benefit, it is very important to take this medication exactly as prescribed.
Norethindrone contains a female hormone known as a progestin.
Norethindrone is a hormone that prevents pregnancy by changing the womb and cervical mucus to make it more difficult for an egg to meet sperm (fertilization) or for the fertilized egg to attach to the wall of the womb (implantation).
Norethindrone is an oral contraceptive.
Norethindrone is prescribed by women who cannot take estrogen.
Norethindrone is prescribed to prevent pregnancy.
Norethindrone is prescribed to prevent pregnancy.
Norethindrone is often referred to as the "mini-pill" because it does not contain any estrogen.
Regular use of the "mini-pill" prevents the release of an egg (ovulation) in about half of the women who use it.
Using Norethindrone does not protect you or your partner against sexually transmitted diseases (HIV, gonorrhea).
While the "mini-pill" is more effective than certain other methods of birth control (condoms, cervical cap, diaphragm), it is less effective than estrogen/progestin birth control because it does not consistently prevent ovulation.
