Well, I was on this med for 3yrs. I was told that it was normal to not have a period while taking it so I never thought much of it. After stopping, I bled for the first 2 months then not again since without having to take provera to give me my period. It's been 2 full years since stopping this pill. Before I ever went on BC I had a cycle like clockwork. I could predict the hour it'd start. ... Show Full Comment

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.

Comment:
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. It was great because I experienced no side effects. But little did I know this pill doesn't have a high effectiveness rate, and I got pregnant. I just want to advise anyone who is on micronor to use a second type of protection
