Micronor (Norethindrone) is a prescription medication used to prevent pregnancy. The drug is also used to treat menstrual disorders, endometriosis, and abnormal vaginal bleeding caused by hormonal imbalances. The active ingredient in Micronor is Norethindrone. Norethindrone belongs to a class of medications called progestins. It works by preventing eggs from fully developing and causing the thickening of the cervical mucus to prevent pregnancy. Norethindrone is a progestin-only contraceptive called minipill. Micronor is often used by women who cannot take estrogen.
