Comment:
Been taking NoraBE for 9 months. Migraines led my doctor to put me on a pill w/o estrogen. Doctor told me that this pill would allow my menstrual cycle to be controlled by my body, which appears to be the case. I have very irregular periods when not on birth control pills (due to PCOS). I have very irregular periods when on Nora BE! I had beautiful skin prior, but began breaking out on my face, ba ... Show Full Comment

Since i started this pill, i haven't had a period. My acne has increased a bit, and i sometimes get random bouts of dizziness and nausea. It has not made my migraines worse so that is a plus. Also, i just want to comment that no birth control method is 100% effective, you other ladies just don't seem to get that.

I have never had acne before & now I'm experiencing it & I'm just barely finishing the 2nd pill pack. Did anyone else have this problem? If so, what did you do?

I'm only taking this during breastfeeding. My skin is breaking out...all over. No periods in the 7 months since I had my baby - not even spotting.

Comment:
I had to switch to this pill, because I was over 35 and a smoker. The first year was great, but had minor breakouts on my face & shoulders, which went away after a few months. The next year, got switched to another generic form & more breakouts. Starting my third year on the actual Nora Be, I have worse acne than a teenager. Over the counter acne medicine aren't even helping. I also bl ... Show Full Comment
