Yes: Miconor is also known as the "mini pill" for birth control as it does not contain any estrogen. For a smoking woman 35 years or older, miconor would be a good birth control pill choice. There is no improvement of menopausal symptoms with micronor (norethindrone). It's usefulness usually leads to use as a birth control pill for nursing mothers as well as to regulate periods.
