Comment:
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.

Comment:

The severity of the pain has decreased after 4 months. My period has become irregular and I have light bleeding during my pe ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was on NorQD for about 3 months. In that time my boyfriend and I were apart, so I can't give an accurate rating on effectiveness. As far as ease of use and my satisfaction go, however, I must say that I was disappointed. I've always had oral birth control and generally don't have issues taking it on time, but I always felt stressed with NorQD because it must be taken at the exact sam ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I'm not entirely sure how I feel about this medication. I've been on Nor- QD for nearly nine months and I'm happy to say I'm not pregnant,so I'm pleased that is preventing what it is designed to prevent, but there are quite a few symptoms I would love to live without. Acne, continued hair loss, inability to lose the weight despite vigorous hour long cardio classes, bimonthly pe ... Show Full Comment
