I was on and off with progesterone and estrogen birth pills and couldn't find one that didn't give me a headache. I have be pen on this pill for 2 months. No headaches, I have no spotting and regular period! I feel stress free and relaxed knowing I found this pill that works for me.

I switched from Microgestin to Nora-Be because of melasma issues. I have taken Nora-Be for almost three weeks and just got my period. It is horribly heavy. Hasn't been this way in years. I asked to switch back.
