I'm on my fourth week of this drug. I had a horrible period at the very start, which was longer than normal. I've also had a small amount of acne. The worst thing, though, is that it has killed my sex drive! Not sure yet if I will stick it out another pack or switch to another type.

I too only took Nora-BE for one month and quit taking it. Haven't had a period for 2 months, test negative. Feel like I could have my period any day, cramping, etc., nothing. Want to get back to normal.

I have been on this birth control for one month and either spotted or had a period every day except two days. I have an increased appetite, facial acne and bad cramps even when spotting. Some days I would spot a little and then with no warning the spotting would turn into a huge surge of menstrual and I have to actuall stop to get to a bathroom! Im done with NORA BE!
