For the last 11 years I have had normal periods with out pain lasting up to 3 days but not any more. This is my second month on Ortho Micronor and I hate this pill.

    I have used this pill for the last three years. I used it for a few months right after my son was born, because it is safer to take while breastfeeding. I was anxious about taking any kind of hormone pill, but have had a good experience with this one. The only complaint I have is that it causes me to have more acne than I would with out it, but it makes my periods shorter, less painful, and less f ... Show Full Comment
