I have been on this pill for a month and a half now and I have no complaints. I was put on this pill by my obgyn because I could not handle the hormones from other BC, i.e. the Nuva Ring which I used for 8 months and then stopped (terrible side effects- weight gain, moody, decreased sex drive, etc) this pill is great. I have had barely any side effects, the only one being constant bleeding which i ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I suffer from migraines when taking birth control with estrogen. It was recommended that I switch to Micronor. I have gone from 2 to 3 migraines a month (while on period) to one every few months (while on period). I have experienced some break through bleeding but it has been very light.

I have gained nearly 20 pounds, acne all over my face, chest and back (way worse than I had in high school) and the period has one incredibly heavy day where I don't know how I have enough fluid to go another 4-5 days as it feels like it just dumps out. Each period now lasts about 5-7 days for me vs 3. The first 4 months ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
First off this pill gave me 4 full periods in 2 months. Then after a month of not bleeding at all I started my 4th month and gt all the side effects you would get upon first starting the pill, such as nausea, bloating, sore/tender breasts, acne, etc... I swore to God I was pregnant and that the pill had failed me. After taking 6 pregnancy tests in 2 months and finding all negative results I as thi ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
A lot of people come on here to write negative reviews since people who are happy don't generally flock to review sites, but I just HAD to write. After painful sex and a lot of bad side effects on Yaz, I switched pills around about 5 times before finding Ortho-TriCyclen. Then I got the news that I had developed liver tumors as a result of taking birth control that contains estrogen (I had no i ... Show Full Comment
