    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 was switched to micronor because I could not handle the combination pills and despite all of the reviews I read before taking this pill, I have experienced not one single neagive side effect. This has been my third pill in a year and I was a little aprihensive taking it because I had read so many bad things about it.

    I got pregnant taking this stuff. I take it at the same time as my diabetic medication, so I never missed a dose. Very disappointed. The side effects were okay. I got bad acne, and a little weight gain. That's about it.
