Micronor (norethindrone) advantages: Micronor (norethindrone) is the "mini" pill because it has a low dose of Progesterone and no estrogen. The advantage of it is that it does not interfere with breastfeeding and has fewer side-effects. The disadvantage is that it has a higher failure rate for preventing pregnancy than the traditional pills.
