I took Nora Be for 6 months. This pill is horrible! My doctor prescribed this pill to me since I am prone to migraines and cannot take anything with estrogen. The first 2 weeks on this pill were fine, after that, it all went downhill. In the entire 6 months I took nora be, I bled almost constantly. I would have 3-4 day breaks between breakthrough bleeding/periods. Constant breakouts, huge painful ... Show Full Comment

This birth control was horrible to me. I couldn't eat anything without feeling nauseous. I started breaking out really badly, even in places that I have never had pimples before (like on my back and head). My hair and face were constantly oily and have never had a problem with that before either. I had a swollen lymph node in the back of my head that went away two days after i stopped taking t ...

I started it over 3 months ago and have had non-stop spotting with maybe 1 period (I can't really tell since I've been spotting 3 weeks out of every month). I had crazy mood swings the first month and a half; crying at my desk, getting in fights with my boyfriend, snapping at friends &am ... Show Full Comment

I've been on this drug for only six days-I'm 6 weeks postpartum and I am BFing. In the past I was on ortho tri cyclenlo and I never had any problems. My experience with Nora-be in such a short time has been awful! My side effects include: migraines so bad that it makes my whole face hurt, moodiness, I've started my period already! Muscle aches, and dizziness. I wonder if it's my bo ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
This is a terrible pill. Within the first couple weeks, I got my first ever migraine and had them 4-5 times a week after that, along with blurry vision. The only time I wasn't spotting is when I was having the heaviest period known to woman, which lasted twice as long as my previous non-pill periods. It made a fibroid I had grow so quickly that my uterus tried to deliver it and I wound up in e ... Show Full Comment
