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 agree, I dont like not knowing when my period will a ... Show Full Comment
