Nor-QD Birth Control

Nor-QD® (norethindrone) is an oral contraceptive that is most commonly used by women who are breastfeeding or who cannot take estrogens for other reasons. This product is a "progestin-only" birth control pill. Because Nor-QD contains only a progestin, it is not as effective as pills that contain both a progestin and an estrogen (known as combined oral contraceptives).
 
Nor-QD is taken by mouth every day, at the same time each day. Remembering to take your pill each day is very important, as skipping pills increases your risk of unintentional pregnancy. As with any medication, side effects are possible with Nor-QD, such as nausea, breast tenderness, and headaches.
