This is something that I have been wondering lately.

I am currently on micronor. From what I have read, it *sometimes* prevents you from ovulating, but what makes it mostly effective is the fact that it thickens mucus and makes it hard for sperm to swim, etc.

Since my allergies have been bad the last couple of days, I was wondering if taking a decongestant (which loosens mucus) would have any affect on the effectiveness of micronor?

Does anyone have any insight?

It could, but the other primary way that Micronor works is to make sure the lining of the uterus is too thin for pregnancy to continue if sperm do get through and conception occurs. The decongestants won't affect that.

It should be on on the pharmaceutical information that comes with your prescription, under "Clincial Action" it should explain it's effects on the endometrium.

Humm...I read the pamphlet, but it's quite possible I missed that part. I just remembered the thickening of mucus part. ....but I also was just scanning through it while watching tv.. lol

Thanks for your help
