Errin Birth Control Pills

Progestin-only birth control pills like Errin® (norethindrone) are often a good choice for women who are breastfeeding and other women who need to avoid estrogen. This drug is actually a generic version of Micronor®. It is slightly less effective than combined hormonal contraceptives, stopping ovulation in only about half the women who take it.
 
Side effects are possible with Errin, as with all birth control pills; common ones include headaches, breast tenderness, and nausea. In addition, women with a history of diabetes, cancer, or migraines should discuss this with their healthcare provider -- this might not be the right contraceptive for them.
