STD Home > Modicon Birth Control Pills

Women interested in taking a birth control pill may consider Modicon® (norethindrone/ethinyl estradiol). The dosage of this oral contraceptive is the same for all women: one pill per day, preferably at the same time each day.
Because not all women should use this form of birth control, Modicon's safety information should be reviewed with your healthcare provider before taking it. For example, your healthcare provider needs to know if you have any medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, liver disease, or diabetes. Drug interactions can make the pill less effective, so you should also provide a list of all medications and supplements you are taking.
