Hard to tell: Micronor (norethindrone) is a progestin-only (single ingredient) minipill. It is hard to tell if a woman taking Micronor (norethindrone) every day actually ovulates or not. This pill works in other ways to prevent pregnancy. She is probably more likely to ovulate if she is missing pills. If she misses some pills, she can use condoms for the next 2 days (if having sex)... while also taking the Micronor (norethindrone) every day.
