What is Norgeston?

Norgeston is a hormonal contraceptive pill that is also known as the mini pill or progestogen only pill. Progestogen is a female sec hormone that prevents pregnancy and acts as a contraceptive. Norgeston comes in a blister pack of 35 pills that need to be taken each day without any breaks as a form of birth control.

How Does Norgeston Work?

The active ingredient in Norgeston contraceptive pills is a synthetic progestogen called levonorgestrel. This synthetic progestogen is like the natural progestogens produced by the body. Norgeston works to prevent pregnancy in three main ways:

  • Levonorgestrel increases the thickness of the natural mucus found at the cervix. This makes it difficult for sperm to cross from the vagina into the womb. Since the likelihood if the sperm entering the womb decreases, the chances of successful fertilization and pregnancy are also decreased.
  • The quality of the lining in the womb is also affected by Levonorgestrel. These alterations make it difficult for fertilized eggs to implant onto the wall of the womb.
  • Levonorgestrel may also prevent the release of eggs from the ovaries.

What Are the Benefits of Taking Norgeston?

Some benefits of Norgeston include:

  • It is a convenient and reversible method of birth control if used the right way.
  • It does not cause any interruptions in sexual intercourse.

How Do I Use Norgeston?

Norgeston comes in a blister strip of 35 pills. These pills need to be swallowed whole with a glass of water and should not be chewed or crushed.

Each pill is marked with the day of the week. Start taking the pill according to the day of the week and continue to take all 35 pills a day until the pack finishes. Take the pill at the same time every day and ensure that you never take the pill more than 3 hours late as it may interfere with the contraceptive results and reduce protection.

Norgeston Tablets Dosage

Norgeston has 35 pills that need to be taken daily. Take one pill a day corresponding to the day of the week. Norgeston needs to be taken without any breaks to maintain its contraceptive protection. One you have finished the pack, start another strip of Norgeston the very next day.
