Oral contraceptives: Supply updates

Supply issue Active

We are experiencing supply issues with a number of combined oral contraceptives.

People may need to change to a different oral contraceptive or go back to their prescriber for further support. More detail about the different oral contraceptives with supply issues is detailed below.

Note about Brevinor

Brevinor 28 and Brevinor 1/28 are different medicines. They have different strengths of norethisterone (the progesteron chemical).

  • Brevinor 1/28 is a funded brand of oral contraceptive. It is experiencing a supply shortage.
  • Brevinor 28 was temporarily funded as an alternative to Norimin. 
  • Brevinor 1/21 and Brevinor 21 are discontinued.
