So about a year ago I took this pill consistently, stopped it for a couple months, took a generic brand of it noticed a difference and went back on the Nora Be. When I went back on it I noticed my sex drive wasn't the same and instead of getting wet (like I used too), it's more of a pasty consistency and not lubricating like I used to be. Does anyone know what this is about? I also almost ... Show Full Comment

I've been taking Nora-Be for almost 7 weeks. I didn't have a cycle my first month, then I started on week 6. My period has been moderate for the last 5 days. I am hoping it is close to ending. The cramping is worse than when I was not taking any BC, but not much worse than when I took the combination pill. I do have two alarms set so I can take it close to the same time every single ...

I was prescribed this medication at my postpartum check up as I elected to breastfeed my baby and needed something that wouldn't hinder such. I had never been on BC before so I wasn't sure if the acne, weight-gain, moodiness and general feeling of panic were normal. After two months, my headaches got so bad that I went to the ER where I learned that I was pregnant with TWINS... Needless to ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was prescribed this pill since I was breastfeeding. My doc said it was my only option and didn't explain these side effects. I decided to stop taking to after 4 months as I was experiencing: acne, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, low sex drive, moodiness/ depression, and weigh gain (this was awful- I was working really hard to loose baby weight with NO RESULTS). I didn't connect that all o ... Show Full Comment
