Progestin related : Micronor (norethindrone) is a progestin only birth control pill and therefore common side effects include breast tenderness; changes in menstrual flow, including breakthrough bleeding or spotting; dizziness; headache; nausea. The unpredictable irregular bleeding is the most bothersome to most people.

After neg. preg. Tes: Once you are assured that you aren't pregnant, you can start the progestin only pill. Don't forget take it the same time everyday.
A 37-year-old member asked:

Are all the ortho micronor (norethindrone) pills alike?

Supposedly: However, while the generics are supposedly alike are definately tolerated differently by the same patient so there are some differences. I sometimes have to specify a specific generic that is tolerated so the brand of generic is not changed each month or so.
