Product information

Norimin is a combined oral birth control pill, marketed and sold in the UK by Pfizer. It contains two hormones which are synthetic versions of progesterone and oestrogen, called norethisterone and ethinylestradiol. This pill is a 21-day treatment, meaning that it is applied for the first three weeks out of each 28-day menstrual cycle. The remaining seven days are pill-free days.

Each month, the body goes through a series of processes in order to ready itself for pregnancy. Ovulation is one such process, and this involves the freeing up of an egg from the ovary. Once released, this egg is ready for fertilisation from male sperm. The egg then travels to the uterus, and if it is fertilised, implants on the uterine wall. For this to occur, the uterine wall must build up a suitable lining so that it can receive implantation.

The hormones progesterone and oestrogen regulate these movements. When conception has taken place, these hormones make it so that the body is not receptive to pregnancy beginning again. What the artificial hormones in Norimin do is simulate this climate, even though the user may not be pregnant. Their presence indicates to the body that ovulation need not take place, and also modifies the uterine wall (or endometrial) lining so that it is not as receptive to an egg.

The ingredients in Norimin also work to thicken vaginal mucus. This makes it harder for sperm to travel through the cervix, and break through to an egg.

It has never been easier to get the medication you need online. Our consultation, prescription and delivery service enables you to buy Norimin from a UK-based seller, and have it shipped to your door. All you need to do is select your product, and take our short questionnaire. A qualified practitioner will review your answers, and once your order has been confirmed as suitable, we’ll dispatch it by next-day courier.
