I have been taking Nor-QD now for four months and well unlike a lot of women I haven't bled one day since I started taking it. It makes me worried and my doctor says that it's fine, it's what the drug will do. But I've gained weight, acne and well the worry of maybe never being able to get pregnant makes it all a but to much.

I hate this pill! I have been spotting ever since I started it. I was told that the spotting would stop after the first 3 months- as if that isnt long enough, it still hasnt stopped! Just 3 days after I started the pill, I started breaking out in acne like I did when I went through puberty! Its awful being a grown woman and looking like a preteen!! Im also often nauseated, and super cranky.

I have been bleeding for 15 weeks STRAIGHT. In 15 weeks since starting NOR QD. I have only not bled a total of 5 days. It is HORRIBLE. I went to the doctor after 6 weeks, but was told to give it a full 3 months for my body to adjust. I have not gotten pregnant, but to my husband's dismay, I'm going to have to result to barrier methods (or buy stock in TAMPAX, as I have gone through ... Show Full Comment
