Expert advice for North East Tablet

For oral contraceptive pill: Take your pill at the same time every day. Do not take norethisterone tablets (for other uses):
  • If you have ever had a reaction to or been told that you are allergic to norethisterone or any of the other ingredients in the tablets.
  • If you are pregnant or suspect that you may be.
  • If you have missed any of the pills in a strip, and you do not bleed within 45 days of your last period, you may be pregnant. Stop taking norethisterone oral contraceptive pill and contact your doctor or family planning clinic, or do a pregnancy test yourself.
  • If you lose a pill, just take a pill from a spare strip. Then take all the other pills from your current strip as usual.
  • If you are sick or have very bad diarrhea or vomiting (within 3 hours of taking the pill), your body may not get its usual dose of hormones from that pill; just take a pill from a spare strip. Carry on taking your pills as normal if you can. You won’t need to use extra contraception.
  • If you have been sick more than 3 hours after taking the pill carry on taking your pills as normal and use extra contraception for 2 days after you are better.
  • If you are planning a baby, it’s best to use another method of contraception after stopping the pill until you have regular periods. However, it will not cause you or the baby any harm if you get pregnant straight away.
Do not take norethisterone tablets for any indication if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
