Nor-Qd Medical Information
What is Nor-Qd?
Nor-Qd, is a hormone medication used to prevent pregnancy. Nor-Qd is also known as the “mini-pill” because unlike most birth control pills it does not contain estrogen. Nor-Qd belongs to a class of medicines known as contraceptive progestins.
Nor-Qd prevents pregnancy by increasing the thickness of the vaginal fluid to help stop fertilization. Nor-Qd also alters the lining of the uterus to prevent attachment of a fertilized egg. Nor-Qd may prevent ovulation (release of an egg) when a woman is having her periods.
Nor-Qd can also be used to prevent menstrual disorders and endometriosis as well as abnormal vaginal bleeding caused by a fluctuation of hormones. You may have to use other birth control methods such diaphragm or condom for 48 hours if you are taking Nor-Qd for the first time.
While Nor-Qd can protect you from becoming pregnant, it does not offer to protection to you or your partner against sexually transmitted diseases. Always use protection.
Nor-Qd Medical Uses
Even though Nor-Qd is more efficient in comparison to certain birth control methods such as condoms, diaphragm or cervical cap, it is less effective than combination hormone (estrogen and progestin) medications. This is because Nor-Qd does not consistently stop ovulation. Nor-Qd is most often used by women who for one reason or the other cannot take estrogen. To lower the risk of getting pregnant, use Nor-Qd as directed.
- Birth Control
To use Nor-Qd effectively, read the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your doctor or pharmacist before you start taking the drug and every time you go for a refill. Among other things, the leaflet comes with important information on how to use Nor-Qd optimally and what to do when you miss a dose.
It is best to start using Nor-Qd on the first day of your periods. Also, it is recommended that you take Nor-Qd after a meal or before going to sleep to reduce the effects of nausea and stomach upset.
You can use Nor-Qd at any time of the day if doing so will help you avoid missing a dose. No matter the time you pick, it is essential that you take Nor-Qd at the same time every day, 24 hours apart.
Note that you are more likely to get pregnant if you miss a dose or take Nor-Qd at varying times of the day. When you miss a Nor-Qd dose, or take it three or more hours later than usual, have diarrhea, or vomiting soon after taking a pill, be sure to use a backup birth control method such as condom every time you have sex for the next 48 hours.
Nor-Qd comes with a dosage guide that you must follow carefully. Continue taking Nor-Qd tablet on a daily basis. There is no break between Nor-Qd packs, and you may not need to take any reminder pill. Note that during first months of using Nor-Qd, you periods may become irregular, heavier or lighter than usual. You may also experience blood spotting when using Nor-Qd. Do not stop using Nor-Qd even when this happening.
- Take one Nor-Qd pill once every 24 hours at the same time
When you need to carry out any type of medical test or if you will be on bed rest, you may have to stop taking Nor-Qd temporarily. You should also let any doctor who is treating you know that you are taking Nor-Qd. You doctor may need to see you from time to time when you are taking Nor-Qd, so be sure to keep the appointment.
Seek immediate medical care if you think you have used too much of Nor-Qd. If you miss taking Nor-Qd for two months in a row, talk to your doctor because you may be pregnant. Be sure to call your physician or pharmacist on how to change from other forms of hormonal birth control such as the patch to Nor-Qd.
