Norimin and Pregnancy


Combined Contraceptive Pill »

If you are using the contraceptive pill and think you might be pregnant, take a pregnancy test and contact your doctor. If your pregnancy is confirmed, you should stop taking the pill immediately. The pill is not designed for pregnancy but to prevent it so it does not create favorable conditions for a foetus to grow.

If you want to become pregnant, simply stop taking the contraceptive pill. Norimin is easily reversible and it will not affect your fertility levels although it may take a couple of months for your cycle to return to normal.  It is best to wait until you have had a regular period that is not controlled by the pill before you try for a baby. This allows the doctor to work out when your due date will be.

If you have had a baby and are breast-feeding, you should not use the contraceptive pill. The pill can reduce the amount of milk you produce and you may not produce a sufficient amount to feed your child. You can also pass the hormones onto your baby through the milk and the effects are not known. It is best to wait until you have weaned your baby off breast milk and use another method of contraception in the mean time.

If you are not breast-feeding, you can start using Norimin 21 days after giving birth as long as you are fully mobile and did not have any complications from the birth. If you start at this time, you will be fully protected from pregnancy. You can also start any time after this but you will need to use additional contraception for the first seven days. Ask your doctor for advice if you are not sure.
