How to Take Norethisterone


Oral contraceptives are pills that help prevent pregnancy and can delay the onset of a woman's period. A period is a naturally occurring event that happens each month and is proof that a woman is able to bear children. Norethisterone is a form of the hormone progestin, which will help prevent pregnancy by altering the lining of the uterus and making it thicker. The pills can also be used to prevent a period in the following month if taken at the correct time.

Step 1

Check the instructions contained in the leaflet that accompanies your medication to find out about possible side effects and other information that is important to your health.

Step 2

Take one Norethisterone pill on the day that your period begins, then take a single dose each day at the same time, if using the pill to prevent pregnancy.

Step 3

Take one Norethisterone pill on the day that your period begins one month before you want to prevent your next period. Then, continue to take a single pill at the same time each day for the following month.

Step 4

Avoid missing a dose entirely or taking a dose more than three hours later, but if you do, use a secondary method of birth control, if you are trying to avoid pregnancy.

Step 5

Complete the entire prescription, which takes one month, then begin the next month's packet normally, taking a single pill 24 hours after the last dose in order to avoid interrupting the cycle.
