Combination of Solpadeine Plus with Noriday birth control?

User Profile
VERY URGENT - 8 days ago I started taking the Noriday 350mg tablets - partly because of incredibly irregular periods and partly as another form of contraception - always in addition to condoms. My current period started 4 days ago and has been incredibly heavy today with very painful cramps. I've also experienced backache and nausea, along with my usual headaches.

I have just taken one Solpadeine Plus for the cramps because I know I will not be able to sleep without them. I'm due to take my Noriday pill any minute - is this safe? I mean, is it okay for me to take the two in a shorrt space of time?

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. The symptoms that you are having can be due to side effects of the oral contraceptive pills. Headache, dizziness and changes in menstrual bleeding are known side effects of the birth control pills Noriday. You need to consult a gynecologist and discuss with him/ her whether the birth control pill can be changed to some other form of birth control pill.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
