Temporary Change from Nordette to Microvile
Hi

Yersterday I went to my doc to get my normal Pill (Nordertte), but they did not have any Pills except for Microvile. Is it safe for me to take that until I get Nordette?

Do you mean MIcroval? This is the mini-pill. You can certainly change pills if you which to but would have to use extra precautions for the first two weeks on the new pill. The minipill is also not quite as safe as Nordette. You cannot just change from one to the other and back, as they are completely different.
