Comment:
Used this while breastfeeding, since it contained no estrogin. Worked fine, except when I didn't take it at the same time of the day (which resulted in spotting). Since this is not 100% effective, I was a little paranoid about getting pregnant.

This pill is easy to take but some of the physical side effects I am experiencing are so upsetting that I have asked my doctor to take me off this form of birth control. I want to go back on my NuvaRing.

Comment:
I cannot take estrogen because it gives me migranes and I am a smoker. My M.D. put me on this due to those factors. I have horrible PMS symptoms and have gained a bit of weight. I'm ususally happy go lucky but foudn myself in a bought of depression last week (the week before my period) crying and all...I would only reccommend this for people who cannot take the combination pill like me.

This birth conrtol was easy and I took it everyday at the same time,however, I did end up becoming pregnant with my sencond child while using Nora-Be. I don't reccommend this form of birth control to someone who doesn't want to become pregnant because it isn't 100% effective.

Comment:
This pill can be difficult to adjust to. The first three months on it I had major mood problems. I stuck with it and after three months my mood returned to normal and i have shorter periods. Although i have worse PMS symptoms. its been almost a year now and im still not pregnant, so it must be working.
