    Initially, I thought my mood swings and anxiety was triggered solely from work, but it just hit me that i'd started this Nora-BE birth control 3 months ago without realizing that it caused me to spiral out of control in temper. I've been more snappy and easily irritable than ever. Once I'd read all the reviews and consulted my doctor it all made sense!! Ladies- if you're reading th ... Show Full Comment

    Iâ??ve been taking Nora Be for nearly 4 months now and so far so good. My periods are about the same (fairly light and about 3-4 days). I take each pill at the exact same time everyday and havenâ??t gotten pregnant so Iâ??m happy about that. I have gained 4 pounds so as long as I donâ??t keep gaining weight I donâ??t have any complaints about this birth control.

    I have been taking this for 3 years. I was put on it after I suffered from blood clots in my lungs that nearly killed me. My periods are random and have a mind of their own. I get crazy PMS even if I don't have a period. I put on weight that I can't get off. I haven't had any pregnancy scares, so it does work.

    I was put on this because I suffer from migraines and other pills have caused me to get them more frequently. I tried this pill for a month and began feeling extremely depressed. So I stopped using it but then found myself giving it another shot more recently. This time around I didn't get the depression side effects as much but now my period is extremely irregular. I have had stomach pains fo ... Show Full Comment

Abnormal bleeding for over 30 days, bloating,migraines,nausea,back pain and weight gain.It has also made my depression worst.
