    I've been on this pill for 3 months now. I have my period every 2 weeks. I never have any signs its coming just shows up. Its very inconvenient. I am not happy with this birthcontrol at all. My moods change very easily. I'm breaking out more then I ever have in my life. My skin seems more dry, and irritated. My hair lacks its shine.

    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 ...

    Currently nursing 12m old, started taking this pill at 3m post partum when my period began again. Was regular for the first 6months and now I am all over the place. I bled off and on an entire month. And now I am on my second month of a 35+ day cycle. I thought the weird cycles were because I was off an hour or more on taking my pill. But then I've been constant with my pill taking and thing ... Show Full Comment

    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
