    This product is great birth control but horrible for my cycle. I used to only spot for 2-3days. Now with these pills I get a period for 7 days. My cycles have never been this long in my entire life. I'll definitely call the doctor in the a.m.

    Throughout the years I have tried more birth controls than I care to count. I have experienced more problems than I care to count- from weight gain, to pain, rashes, headaches and migraines, mood changes and the list goes on. Nor-QD is the ONLY birth control that I have successfully been able to take with absolutely ZERO problems. I still have a regular menstrual cycle and nothing mentally or phys ... Show Full Comment

    I hate this BCP. I was on Ortho Tri-Lo and never had a bit of problem with it. Now on Nor-QD I have my period whenever it decides to come and it lasts for weeks. This is by far the worst birth control I have ever used, and I have been using BCPs since I was 17 to control cramps and irregular cycles.

The first 4 months I had severe cramping and breast tenderness which was not much of a problem for me considering that it relieves me from stressing over pregnancy scares.
