Micronor and Pregnancy


Combined Contraceptive Pill »

The pill should not be used in conjunction with pregnancy. If you believe that you may be pregnant, take a pregnancy test and get confirmation from your doctor. If you are pregnant, stop taking Micronor immediately because there is a greater risk of an ectopic pregnancy if you continue with the pill. This is where the egg is growing outside the womb and it will result in abortion, as it cannot be carried to full term.

If you want to try for a baby, all you need to do is stop taking the pill. You will not be protected from pregnancy, as soon as you have stopped taking one pill. It is best to wait until you have had a regular period that is not controlled by the contraceptive pill because your doctors will ask you when this was  in order to determine your babies due date. This is not essential and it does not matter if you become pregnant beforehand but it is helpful for the doctor.

If you have had a baby and are breast-feeding, you can breast feed but you are usually advised not to. Talk to your doctor for advice, to see if there is a possibility you can breast feed but you can pass on the hormone to your baby and the effects are not known.

If you want to start Micronor and you are not breast-feeding, you can start taking the pill straight away after the birth of your child. This will provide immediate protection from pregnancy. You can start at any time but you will not be protected from pregnancy and you will need to use additional contraception for the next two days.
