My doctor switched me to this nine months ago to combat uncharacteristically high blood pressure. While it prevented pregnancy, my primary concern, the side effects were horrendous.

I thought I was one of the lucky ones to keep a regular period with this medicine. I did for almost a year. Now I get it every 2 weeks like it or not.

I had tried so many different kinds of birth control in the past but they all seemed to make me extremely moody or nauseated. My doctor suggested I try micronor.

I just want to advise anyone who is on micronor to use a second type of protection

I have been taking micronor for just over a week now and for 5 days i have been experiencing period pain but no period. Confused to say the least but i have no spots mood swings or any of the other side effects it describes. I was wondering if anyone has has similar experiences and if it changed. I would appreciate you feedback

I have only been taking this for a few days, but the mood swings, depression, anger that I am experiencing are unbelievable. I can already feel acne developing as well. I need to stop for the well being of my family!!
