Who Can Use Norimin?


Combined Contraceptive Pill »

Not everyone can use the contraceptive pill as a method of contraception. The pill has links with certain diseases and can make some illnesses worse so some women should not use the contraceptive pill. When you go to see your doctor, they will ask about your physical health and determine whether you are suitable for the pill or whether it poses too much of a risk to your health.

You should not use Norimin if you have any of the following conditions. These in conjunction with the pill can be dangerous. You should not use the pill if you have blood clots or have had them in the past, cancers such as breast, womb and cervical cancer, jaundice, liver disease, liver tumours, migraines with aura, pruritis, or high levels of fat in the blood. Also, if you have ever had a heart attack or a stroke or suffered from angina, you should not use the pill.  You shouldn’t use the pill if you have unexplained vaginal bleeding.

Some women can use the pill with caution if they have certain conditions. You will need to attend regular checkups to ensure that the pill is not making your illness worse and if it is, you might not be able to use this form of contraception. You can use Norimin with caution if you have high blood pressure, epilepsy, liver problems, fibroids, poryphryia, sickle cell anaemia, depression, kidney disease, chloasma, varicose veins, breast problems, multiple sclerosis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes or tetany. If you notice your illness is getting worse or you experience any of these conditions for the first time, contact your doctor immediately.

Also, if you had any illnesses that appeared when you were pregnant you should tell your doctor. The pill may cause these conditions to reappear or get worse so report any symptoms as soon as possible.
