Q & A

Contraception is the intentional use of artificial means or techniques to avert pregnancy – a result of sexual intercourse. In simple words, contraception is birth control. It ensures that you are totally protected from the risk of unexpected pregnancy. Most of the contraceptives work on one of the four preventions: the female egg from being released every month, sperms from reaching the female egg, blocking the reproductive function in both males and females or preventing a fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus.

Noriday tablets are hormonal contraceptives used to prevent pregnancy. They are the progestogen-only pills, also known as ‘mini pills’. Noriday tablets contain only one sex hormone, progestogen. It is present in the medicine in the form of norethisterone. This hormone primarily works to prevent the sperm cells from entering the womb. Often, mini-pills do not reduce the chances of egg ripening in the females. This is the main reason that combined pills are used. However, Noriday is highly effective because it prevents the eggs from ripening.

I am contemplating trying the Pills, but apparently is it harmful for younger women?

No. The risks surrounding the pills aren’t big at all, but they become much higher when taken by older women. In the age group of 16-25, the danger of experiencing any unpleasant side effects is very small.

Do birth control pills protect me from STIs?

Birth control contraceptives do not protect you from STIs. However, only condoms can help to effectively prevent most STIs.

Do birth control pills cause weight gain?

No. There is no research to conclude that birth control pills cause weight gain. However, the birth control shot/injection has, in some cases, been linked to weight gain in certain women.

Which birth control method is the most effective?

Certain methods of birth control are more popular than others, but finding the method most suitable for you completely differs from person to person. If you are looking to prevent pregnancy as greatly as possible, we’d recommend using a highly effective form of birth control (such as COC, ring, UID, etc.) as well as condoms. This way, you will be receiving prevention from pregnancy and protection from STD transmission.
