 1  Birth Control Weight gain, migraines, bloating, stomach cramps, loss of sex drive, moodiness, snappiness, discharge, skin problems I hate this pill!! Was put on this as birth control and after having bad reactions to the normal pill was told this mini pill had no severe side effects.Rubbish! I have gone from a size 8 to a size 12 and couldn't work out why as I am constantly on my feet and barely eat! I lost all interest in sex, thank god my fiancé is patient! Severe migraines and fatigue. Not good with 2 small children. Snappy, moody, generally a complete pain in the rear. Felt fat, ugly, and didnt need much of an excuse to start an argument, even with myself! I am stopping these tonight! Only other thing I can think of is the coil? Doctors really should inform women of these issues. F 35 14 months

 1  Birth Control Tiredness, Increased Appetite, Sore/Tender Breasts, Spotting, Apathy, Anxiety, Spots, Headache, Bloating, Low Moods, I started taking this 10 days ago and began spotting only 5 days later. My breasts were extremely sore to the touch and appear to be swollen. My appetite has increased and I've been eating too much junk food lately as I seem to be craving sugar. I have a history of depression/low moods on certain types of birth control (depo being one of them) and the last 3-4 days I've started having the same feelings coming back from taking Micronor. I'm feeling restless, yet have no go in me to do anything. I'm tired and just feel very flat and disinterested in everything and everyone. F 30 10 days

 4  To stop periods completely Tender breasts, occasional cramping I started taking this medication to stop my periods completely because I am on blood thinners and my periods were severely heavy, I was losing so much blood that I became severely anemic every time I had my period. I took the generic form of Micronor for a year and was told by my doctor that it would take about a year for it to stop my periods, but after a year I still had a period about every 3 months, in which my periods would last 3 weeks. At the start of the generic I gained 20 lbs the first month and another 20 the following year. At the 1 year mark I switched to the name brand of Micronor because my doctor said that some women react better to the name brand than the generic. I have not had any side effect or weight gain with it and I only had one last period right after taking it that lasted 4 days. So far it's been 4 months and no period. So far, it's working like it was intended and I'm very happy with it. If you're reading this and thinking about taking this med, I'd encourage you to get the name brand if possible. F 26 1.5 years

 1  As a Birth Control Major Mood Swings, Depressive tendencies, Pent up Anger, Frustration, Feelings of worthlessness, Constant Shroud of Anxiety, Light but Frequent Periods I have not had a day in the past two weeks where I have not cried. I thought I was just depressed, having moved to a new city and recently graduated. I thought that the monthly rent, my new job, having a few amount of friends, not having the exercise routine I wanted to. I thought maybe it was driving me into a depressive hole. But everything was so bad. I am still on it currently and I can tell you I have major lack of interest in activities, no drive to try and put myself out there, and the mood swings. Oh my god the mood swings. Yesterday I had my first anxiety attack. Couldn't breath it was so strong. Literally knocked me down to the floor with all the weight of it's worrisome, worthlessness. I cry if my boyfriend does or says something wrong. I mean 4 hours straight crying after already staying up until 3 in the morning and having work at 4:30 the next day. Over Everything. I am typically a logical, sympathetic person but Micronor threw me over the edge. It was a constant flow of easily jolted desperation to grasp onto my emotions and control myself. I felt irrational. What's lousy is that I blamed myself. I didn't think it could have been my birth control. I was never warned this could be a side effect. I blamed myself for being erratic and did not know why I could not get a handle on myself. As of tonight I am no longer going to be taking Micronor in hopes that within the two week span of filtrating out of ones system, everything goes back to normal. I wish everyone l F 19

 3  contraception extremely tender breasts, bloating, breakouts, anxiety, irritability, mood swings, PMS symptoms for 2 weeks before period! I was prescibed this contraception due to migraines and bad experiences with other progesterone only methods (cerazette and the implant) The family planning nurse advised this was a differnent type of hormone that works with your body more naturally. After the first few days of taking it i started to feel quite sick and my breasts were so sore i couldnt ever take my bra off, but after a week or so this calmed down.... temporarily! After the first few weeks i started to get severe PMS 2 weeks before my period was even due... i was then 4 days late for my period and it lasted for 7 days (normally i am on every 28 days and it last 4-5 days) I thought this was just the pill settling in but then gradually my mood swings, anxiety and general mood have got worse! My last period was a week early and lasted for a week again! I feel like i am either on my period or having severe PMS constantly! I also feel like this pill is a pain as you have to take it at the same time everyday. I think it works well as a contraception as long as you take it at the same time everyday but for me, the side effects aren't worth it! I know everyone is different so its worth trying but i think its back to natural family planning for me as nothing suits me! F 26 3 months

 1  Contraception I have never written a review of this kind online before but feel so angered about the side effects of this pill (and some other POPs), that I wanted other people to be informed of my experience before making a decision to take it themselves. Without wanting to replicate/duplicate the negative mood-swing comments on here already ... by my symptoms seem to be identical to many others on here. Constant feeling of "what's the point"; suicidal thoughts, enraged anger over absolutely nothing; irregular bleeding - sometimes for weeks with no pattern at all. I didn't suffer headaches and don't believe this pill to have affected my weight. I came off Cerazette for the same reasons as above and was prescribed Micronor instead - both have very similar side effects and wouldn't recommend either! F 38 6 months

 1  Birth Control Excessive weight gain - 15 pounds since taking it. Heavy,painful period,headaches daily,nausea,bloated stomach and discomfort,swollen and tender breasts,low sex drive,irratability and tirednes. Prior to using Micronor i was using the Mirena coil but had unpleasant side effects so was was advised by GP to use this...AWFUL! The side effects were worse than the coil,stopped taking today so hopefully will start feeling normal again. F 44 8 months

I was put on this pill by OB after birth - my body was getting back to pre-pregnancy shape until I started this pill (6weeks after birth). I have piled on the weight over 6-7mths.

 1  Birth control??? I started taking Micronor because I have an inherited blood clotting disorder, so my doctors won't let me use anything with estrogen in it. So when I started taking Micronor, my hands broke out in a HORRIBLE itchy rash. I would get random bug bite looking things all over my hands and my god, did they itch. I could barely even sleep. I tried anti-itch cream but it barely helped at all. I freaked out for weeks, thinking I had bed bugs, but I didn't. I realized it might be the birth control. At that point, me and my boyfriend broke up so I didn't have to take the pills anymore. After a few weeks I think, all the itchy bumps went away. Not sure if I'm allergic to it or just a side effect..? I'm getting super depressed. I can't take anything with estrogen, and I may be allergic to this. The Depo shot is really bad so I refuse to take that (my mom refuses to let me even if I wanted it). Sure there are condoms and spermicide, but you know how that goes. Condoms suck and spermicide just sounds really disgusting and a turn off.. I'm so frustrated. F 16 3 weeks

 1  birth control/suffer from migraine Mood swings, bad skin, Weight gain, hair loss, irregular and very painful periods. Tender boobs, bloating....Was on cerazrette but had to change because of irregular bleeds which was a shame as it was ideal. Started taking micronor and the last 2-3years have been awful. Full of pregnancy tests, scans for cysts or fibroids & pain. Have now had IUD fitted (without hormones!) 2 weeks ago and feel free of hormones and cramping, bit of light spotting but it's good just not feeling so down and argumentative and fat! :) F 41 3 years

 4  I couldn't take any other pill After Femulen was discontinued (I loved this pill -no periods, no mood swings, no cramps etc) my doctor put me on Micronor as I can't take oestrogen tablets due to the migraines I used to have. The first couple of months, I saw my period come back for about ten days every two weeks and I started to get the nausea etc. I am now just finishing month three and things appear to have settled down, no period for over a month now and the nausea has gone. Fingers crossed it stays that way!! F 27 1 days

 2  prevent pregnancy/migrains I started Micronor back in 2009 recommened to me bc I can't take other types of birthcontrol with estrogen in them due to my sever migrains . The first 3 years i was on it, it was amazing! Never had a period again after I took the first pill! Woooo-Whooo! No periods! Who wouldn't love that...untill ur constatly freaking out thinking your pregnant (when your not) spending unnessasry money on tests & freaking my fiance & myself out for no reason. Other than that I was in love with the pill, no cramps, no periods, no mood swings, no change in sex drive.....was the perfect pill....atleaset i thought lol When my fiance & I took a break I got off birth control completely but then when we got back together I immediatly got back on the micronor. This time around it was a COMPLETELY different experience. I would have a period (full on period) every 2 weeks and be spooting the other 2 weeks so basically i had a period all month long for about 3months then outta no where its gone! Havent had a period in 4 months now. They warned me about periods being irregular but its driving me crazy, im so so bloated taken a bunch of preg test all negative (thank god) but if I'm not pregnant why am i continually gaining weight, so bloated none of my clothes fit, severly depressed, and anxiety through the roof. Moody, insomnia bad, cant sleep, then tired all day. feel depressed, fat, ugly, no self worth, pain in lower back, sore breasts....really wish I would have come, isolating myself. Its been really bad I thought I was going crazy but now after reading all these glad to know I'm not crazy & its probably the pills. I am going to the dr next week to make sure im 100% not pregnant (fingers crossed for me that im not) & stopping these pills asap! F 27 4 years

I should have been on this all this time . I take it at the same time every day and all the symptoms I had on the Beyaz are gone . I think everyone is different . Not everything is for everyone.

 1  migraines & endometriosis psychotic episodes// suicidal feelings// PREGNANCY// miscarriage// violent mood swings// insomnia// daily panic attacks// thyroid imbalance// EXCESSIVE HAIR LOSS// never ending bleeds for weeks & months at a time// androgens in this pill caused painful regular cystic acne on chin// asked to be taken off this pill after 3 months of side effects listed. was told to continue. side effects became more severe over time. took pill at exact same time daily (alarm on my phone) only to discover i miscarried at 12 weeks. did not know i was pregnant. went to doc last week regarding these persistent effects only to find i have massive cysts on my left ovary now. cysts that did not exist on my left ovary 8 months ago. i was told this was better than cerazette. is pill is awful. i won't even get in to how this pill mentally debilitated me. ladies, if your mind or body tell you micronor is wrong, listen to yourself. doctors do not understand this medication fully, as my left ovary will verify.

 1  Birth Control(I'm on Epilepsy meds) Mood swings, Incredible rage at boyfriend often (Now ex because we were fighting so much!), Depression, Suicidal thoughts, self harm, Acne on my face, hair loss, Breast swelling, breast tenderness, Increase in appetite FEELING (I would be hungry but would eat less and feel full then hungry again within an hour!) Back pain, Constant tiredness, foggy mind, Stress, Constantly felt pregnant, cramps, would randomly feel as though I was starting my period when I wasn't, short periods. To be honest, The irrationality and Depression were the worse. I literally became a completely different person while I was on this. I will never take it again, I almost ended my life while on it. This is my first form of birth control. Because of what this did to my mood I went through a breakup yesterday with someone I felt strongly about. At first I thought maybe I was crazy and it wasn't the pills but after coming here I definitely know. Women do not take this! It isn't worth the risk! I'm stopping this tonight. It's brought me nothing but pain. F 17 2 months

 1  Contraceptive and PMS Was given this due to my age, I'm early 40's so can no longer take the combined pill. I was also told it would stop my PMS completely. I started taking this when I was bleeding heavily for over 7 weeks on Serazette. The bleeding stopped within days and everything seemed fine for the first month. The closer it got to my period date I found my breasts were that sore that I couldnt touch them, my libido was at rock bottom and I was having spurts of terrible anger. My period came and lasted 4 days and then the reality sank in. The tiredness is the worse. All I want to do is sleep and when I am awake all I am doing is crying. If I'm not crying and believing life isnt worth living then I am ready to argue and fight with everyone. After reading all these comments, I dont think I will be taking my dose tonight or any night. The way life has been the last couple of weeks, I think I would rather get pregnant. Roll on the Menapause I see as it's got to be easier than this pill. Oh and F 42 2 months

Everything plucks my nerves I cry very easy I'm snappy my period comes when it wants and when it does it last for a week or two.I've gained a ton of weight I'm breakin out horribly my boobs have gone up a size . I constantly think I'm pregnant becus I'm havin food cravings and always drained of energy but every test shows that I'm not pregnant. I'm not able to take estrogen becus I have high blood pressure so this is very frustrating . I feel like I'm out of options. F 22 6 months

 1  Breastfeeding I started taking this pill when my son was a year old after my period came back (was breastfeeding exclusively) I was having pms and breakouts and do not want to get pregnant right now I felt a little moodier the first month of taking it. Then I felt more hatred toward my husband then I do when I have pms. Even my kids were getting in my nerves which rarely happens. I agree with other reviews that say you get a weird tired zombie feeling and also pain in the back and body. I was afraid to weigh myself but did feel bloated. I also felt like crying over the silliest things and more anxiety. My sleep was very restless and when I did sleep it didn't feel like a deep sleep and I felt so tired all day I thought maybe it wasn't the pill but I stopped a few days ago and feel better already. The only good thing is it cleared my skin and stopped my period but then I was paranoid I was pregnant because I felt tired and nauseous. But not pregnant in glad to see the reviews and know I'm not imagining things F 30 2 months

 2  have high blood pressure OK.. I was on ortho Tri cyclen lo for 6 years and I loved it. my doctor switched me to ortho micronor 2 months ago because of my high blood pressure (ortho Tri cyclen lo increased my chances of having a stroke because of the estrogen in the pills).. but anyway I don't like it! my period stopped immediately and I have already gained 5 pounds. I have been bloated for the past 5 days and my skin is starting to break out! I am also having trouble falling asleep at night (hence why I am on here at 5am leaving a review lol) but I am mostly terrified at not having a period... I feel the need to take a pregnancy test every month :( but I wouldn't recommend this pill.. I was aware of the fact that my period may stop and I was also comfortable because micronor and ortho-lo are made by the same company. BUT I simply cannot deal with these changes. I am very unhappy I am going to see my doctor about getting on another type of birth control... if I could I would definitely switch back to ortho Tri cyclen lo..

 1  Can't take oestrogen pill 3 weeks in and already I've gained about 16 pounds. I feel disgusting and pretty moody, and the pain in my breasts is unreal. I can't even shower properly because the slightest touch while washing is enough to make me scream. Going off this pill right now, since I now find out it isn't even effective - and if I gain any more weight I won't fit into a single thing I own!! So bad! I know lots of people have no bad reaction, but if you have anything within the first week like I did (insanely rapid weight gain), SEE THE DOCTOR AGAIN. I didn't realise until today that this was all because of the pill. I don't personally recommend it at all, but at least try it. Good luck! F 22 3 weeks

 5  used to get aura migraines I was put on micronor because estrogen increased my chances of getting aura migraines. I was very good at taking my pill at the same time every day. In the first year if I took it off schedule even the slightest I would have spotting. I have. Or had a period since then. I never want kids and not having to deal with a period is the most amazing thing ever. In the past while I've been less good about taking it at the same time (new city new job new timezone etc). Still no period or spotting at all - but my boobs have doubled, and being that I was an A that is a good thing! I have gained about 5 pounds since the move because I'm not as devout at the gym - but before and after starting this pill I was very skinny. I have always had bad skin, so I missed that benefit of the estrogen pills, but with the right products and age I seem to be balanced now. All the reviews seem awful - and my friend also had a horrible experience. Guess I lucked out. No periods and perky boobs. F 35 5 years

I had a period on Feb. 13, Feb. 25 it started back up again and has lasted 3 days so far and way heavier than my periods have ever been! For that fact, i already dont like this BC method. I also beleive that it is making me really moody!!!!!!!! And irritable! I want to get off of it, but i still want to continue nursing and NOT ready for another baby anytime soon!!! F 29 3 months

 1  Birth control Started taking micronor as I was in new relationship and can't go on combined pill due migraines. 2 months on I have gained weight, my breasts are very tender and I have noticed a lump. My skin is dry and blotchy on my face and my hair seems greasy. I feel bloated all the time I have had 2 urine infections (never had before micronor) and a dose of thrush. I have become irritable and have lost interest in sex which is not great in a new relationship! The penny has dropped this pill had taken over my body and mind and I am not going to continue to poison myself anymore! F 29 2 months

 2  Breastfeeding Pregnancy I was taking it after having my son becuause I was trying to still breastfeed but mostly pumping. My period was already irregular and was every 6 weeks, when I talked to the doctor about it he said that micronor would corect it and my body would go to a 4 week cycle but after a couple months if taking it I started to have the same feelings I did when pregnant with my son so I took a test and found out that I was infact pregnant. I now have a 16 month old and a 3 week old baby and again was put on the micronor because I'm breastfeeding. I think they need to invest in a birthcontrol that is safe well breastfeeding but actually works! (both kids were wanted just not so close together) F 26

 1  Birth Control ACNE (cystic). Unstoppable. Around my mouth. The only side effect, was unbelievable unstoppable untreatable acne. I work in sales and I am around men all day. It was embarrassing. Nothing would treat, diminish, deter, or control the acne. It occurred to me, all of a sudden why I was getting this acne. It just hit me "it's my pill". I went to the doctor the next morning, got Diane-35 and literally OVERNIGHT my skin is clearing up. I admit, I took 2 (I don't advise) and my skin will be okay tomorrow. If you have sudden acne, it's this pill. It did increase my libido. F 31 3 months

 5  Breastfeeding I started taking this pill because my doctor prescribed it because I was breastfeeding. I have stopped breastfeeding my daughter about 2 and half months ago, and I'm still taking it. I have not gotten my period yet, since before I found out I was pregnant. I was worried I might be pregnant. I dod understand that being on this pill can affect your period. After reading all the comments about this pill. Seems like heaven sent. I'm really good at remember to take it the same time daily. I have put the pack at a place where I can see it through out the day. So it's hard to forget to take it. I haven't really experienced any mood swing that I've experienced on other pills in the past. However, I have gained weight. But it's nothing I can't work off in the gym! F 32 9 months

 1  Nursing/birth control I was nursing my daughter so I had no choice initially, but when I stopped nursing, I was having periods like every other week. I just thought my cycle would be irregular after pregnancy, but it went on for months!! And the decreased libido, and easily being irritates were other major side effects. Going back to tricyclic birth control pill. F 34 8 months
