I'm on Noriday/Micronor. I like it better than Cerazette, even though I liked the fact that cerazette had a bigger window if you forgot to take it!
I found cerazette lowered my libido, which while I suppose it makes for a good contraceptive (!) is not very helpful in an otherwise active relationship. I don't seem to have this problem with Noriday, nor any weight / skin problems or whatever.
The only thing I find is that my periods are completely random - can go 2-3 months with nothing, then have two bleeds a couple of weeks apart. They are very light though with no other symptoms, so apart from the unpredictability this isn't a problem.
Hi, I’m sort of in the same position. After these antibiotics my Dr has suggested I try Noriday. I have also taken Norethisterone to try and control the constant bleeding from the copper coil. It only reduced the bleeding but the dr thinks if I can tolerate that then the contraceptive form should be ok if I can remember to take it on time. Norgeston is still an option for me too but this is the same ingredient which is in the mirena so if you bleed on the mirena you will likely bleed on that pill (also the same stuff in Jaydess and morning after pill). The implant is a different ingredient (although I bled for 9 months straight on this) though and you could speak to someone about a copper coil if bleeding was the only issue from the mirena (maybe you would have better results than me) Hope this helps
I guess it depends how heavy you are to begin with on whether it is worth it. It it was horrendous for me though and I wouldn’t recommend it unless it really is someone’s last option and they really desperately need contraception. Every woman is so different though ...
How are you getting on with Noriday now? I've been on it before but had very painful and heavy periods. Been suggested by a pharmacist to double the dose and take 2 a day instead of 1 to stop bleeding. Anyone doing that?
