Jencycla Birth Control Information

JencyclaTM (norethindrone) is a birth control pill available by prescription only. This generic version of Ortho Micronor® is a progestin-only contraceptive (also known as a "mini pill"). It is often prescribed for use in women who are breastfeeding or those who are unable to take estrogens.
 
Although this is a quite effective form of birth control, information about Jencycla should be reviewed with your healthcare provider prior to use in order to help ensure safe, effective treatment. Women who have diabetes, migraines, or other medical conditions may have an increased risk for complications while using this pill.
 
This contraceptive comes in tablet form and is taken by mouth once a day. It is important to take this pill every day, at the same time each day, as missing doses (even by a few hours) increases your risk of an unintentional pregnancy. Jencycla is not approved for use in girls who have not yet started menstrual periods.
