Norgeston contains a type of female sex hormone, called a progestogen. This hormone stops you getting pregnant by working in three ways: by making the fluid (mucus) in your cervix thicker, which makes it more difficult for sperm to enter the womb; by preventing the lining of your womb thickening enough for an egg to grow in it; and in some women it also stops the ovary releasing an egg each month (ovulation).

To prevent pregnancy, always take Norgeston as described below.
- Take Norgeston every day for 35 days
- Norgeston comes in strips of 35 pills, each marked with a day of the week.
- Take your pill at the same time every day. Make sure that you are never more than three hours late with a pill otherwise the contraceptive protection may be lost.
- Start by taking a pill marked with the correct day of the week.
- Follow the direction of the arrows on the strip. Take one pill each day, until you have finished all 35 pills.
- Swallow each pill whole, with water if necessary. Do not chew the pill.
- Start your next strip of Norgeston the very next day after finishing the previous pack, again taking a pill marked with the day of the week. Always start the new strip on time.
If you miss a pill:
- If you are less than 3 hours late with a pill, take it straight away. Keep taking your pills at the usual time. This may mean taking two pills in one day. Don’t worry as your contraceptive protection should not be reduced.
- If you are more than 3 hours late with a pill, or you have missed more than one pill, your contraceptive protection may be reduced.
