Yes : Micronor (norethindrone) is a good option for anyone who wants an oral contraception and who can't take estrogen or the regular birth control pill. Perimenopausal women def need to continue to use birth control.

Micronor (norethindrone) Contracepti: Micronor (norethindrone) is the mini pill and has Progesterone only as compared to other birth control pills that have estrogen and progesterone. Micronor (norethindrone) has a higher failure rate for contraception than other pills and hormonally may not provide you with relief of any menopausal symptoms. It does provide contraception and is a viable option, but if y9ou have menopausal symptoms, consider something else.
