16 Jul 2015 I went off this drug this morning and am looking forward to not bleeding for a month straight at a time (I think of the 3 ½ months i've been on it, i've bled for 2 ½ - 3 months). I certainly won't miss severe mood swings (or crying jags). I have't gained weight - but i've had a tough time loosing it. I wonder how long it will take for my system to get back to "normal".

07 Jul 2015 Worst birth control ever! My midwife gave me this after thr birth of my son. I started taking it on June4th and I have been bleeding on and off since then. Just when I think its over it starts right back up. Not to mention acne and mood swings like you would not believe. I'll go back to nuvaring.

04 Aug 2014 I had it inserted in my arm (a little tube good for 5 years). I had it removed four months ago early bc of massive side effects. It's started with two months of the worse migraines I've ever experienced. Constant discomfort. My breast were also sore. I didn't have my period the whole time. I finally got my period back two months after the Nora insert was removed. I gained 20lbs on my 5'3 frame. Went from a size 2-4 to a size 8. I could have dealt with the horrible headaches and the weight gain... But the lack of sex drive is the worst of all. What's the point of being on birth control if the though of sex sounds like the WORST idea on the planet. I have always loved sex and was usually the one to initiate it! Now I feel like it's a chore :( I have been praying and trying everything for my sex drive to come back. On the Nora BC I felt insecure, over weight and completely lost my sex drive. This was by far the worst thing i have ever done to my body- and it was recommended by my gynecologist... I have been seeing her for 16 years, maybe not anymore!

07 Oct 2013 I was on the progesterone and estrogen before and doctor suggested this medication. So far it is ok, but now with terrible headaches before and during period and now have terrible leg cramps but not sure if this is the cause of Nora BE.
