Norgeston and Pregnancy


Combined Contraceptive Pill »

You should not use Norgeston if you are pregnant. If you think that you may be pregnant, you should take a pregnancy test to confirm and see your doctor. If you are pregnant, stop taking the pill immediately because it can increase your risk of an ectopic pregnancy which can be life threatening.

If you want to try for a baby, all you need to do is stop taking the pill. Once you have stopped taking it, you will not be protected from pregnancy and you can start trying for a baby. It is advised that you wait until you have had a period after you have stopped the pill so that you can tell your doctor when your last regular period was because your doctor can then work out your due date. The pill should not affect your fertility levels.

If you have a baby and are breast-feeding, you are usually advised not to use the contraceptive pill. The reasoning behind this is that you can pass on the hormone to your baby through your milk and the effects could be detrimental. However, Norgeston has shown that there are no adverse effects to breast-feeding your child whilst using this form of the pill. Talk to your doctor for advice to see what the best option for you and your baby is.

If you want to start using Norgeston after delivery, you can start straight away. If you do not start immediately, you will not be protected from pregnancy so you should use additional contraception and use extra protection once you start using the pill for seven days.
