    The first time I used this, there were no troubles. As a matter of fact I didn't even have a period. I was on it because it was the only option for a breast feeding mother. I'm on it for the second time now and have had nothing but problems after the first 5 months. I have a period every other week that lasts from 2-7 days. My vision is blurred from time to time, headaches constantly, diz ... Show Full Comment

    I am on my 3rd pack of NoraBE, after having a baby 4 months ago. If I miss a pill (which is about twice/month), it seems to trigger my period...and the cramping is extremely painful! I have also gained wait and decreased an entire cup size! It's prevented pregnancy, which is great, but is it worth ALL of side effects??

    I have been on this bc for a little over a month and I had regular periods always before birth control. My periods were so regular that I knew exactly when to expect the first cramps. I am now late for my 2nd period on this bc. I followed the instructions and took it every morning at 9am without fail. Now I am starting to worry that I might be pregnant and its only been 11 weeks since my daughter ... Show Full Comment
