Progestin Pharmaceutical Information

Java progestin contraceptive pills are called progestogen contraceptive pills, POPs or "minipill". These pills are usually not suitable for combined use with oral contraceptives that also contain estrogen.

Birth control pills contain progestin (a female sex hormone made by humans) called noratindrone, which is similar to the hormone progesterone, which is made naturally by the ovaries.

Norethindrone works by thickening the wall of the cervix, making it difficult for sperm to enter the egg through the cervix and uterus. It also affects the uterus and prevents the growth and attachment of eggs. Norethindrone also affects the ovaries to some extent, and ovulation (release of eggs every month) may not occur as usual.
