What is Noriday?

Noriday is a type of birth control known as the progesterone-only pill or ‘mini-pill’. Most forms of birth control pill contain synthetic versions of both oestrogen and progesterone, but Noriday does not contain oestrogen. This makes Noriday a good option for women who can’t take the traditional pill or for women who experience oestrogen-related side effects such as acne or mood swings.

Can you buy Noriday over the counter in the UK?

No contraceptive pills are available over the counter in the UK, including Noriday. Like all medications, there are risks associated with taking the pill. This includes an increased risk of blood clots and certain cancers. Therefore, it is important that your doctor assesses your suitability for the pill before issuing your prescription. However, other contraceptives are available over the counter, such as condoms, so you can be protected from pregnancy without a prescription. 


Alternative treatments

There’s a number of different birth control options available including:

  • Contraceptive injection (Depo-provera)
  • The IUS (Mirena coil)
  • The implant 
  • Contraceptive patches (Evra)
  • The IUD (copper coil)
  • Vaginal rings (NuvaRing)
  • Condoms
  • Femidoms

You should look into the different forms of birth control that are available so you can make sure you find the one most suitable for you.
