What Are The Side Effects Of Noriday Pill?

My Boyfriend took me to the Doctors yesterday so we could get some form on Contraception. I was given Noriday the mini pill. I m concerned about weight gain, will I gain weight? I m also concerned about my acne. I am correctly on erythromycin for it and was wondering if it will affect Noriday and make my skin worst? I m 16 160ish Cm tall and weight 47Kgs. Thanks

Hi,

Noriday pill contains norethisterone, a natural female sex hormone called progesterone that is used in the prevention of unwanted pregnancies from unprotected sexual intercourses and in the treatment of various menstrual problems like irregular periods, heavy or prolonged periods. Sometimes Noriday pill, only containing progesterone, tends to cause skin oilier and may aggravate acnes.

Again like other oral hormonal contraceptives, this medication may cause significant weight gain in some cases. But this medication doesn't cause weight gain or aggravate acnes in all cases, it is not like that. So, you should follow your doctor's advice and if any side effects appear during taking this medication, then you should inform your doctor immediately for medical attention.

Take care. Hope I have answered your questions. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
