 5  Birth control I started taking this because I'm not allowed estrogen. The first few months I spotted a lot but now all is well and I wouldn't want any other pill. If you can push through the first few months of adjusting it's well worth it. F 31 2 years

 2   Depression, mood swings, unexplained crying, painful/severe cystic facial acne. Tried to push through the side effects, but it's just not worth it. Due to chronic high blood pressure, I'm only allowed "Norethindrone only" birth control pills. NOR-QD made me cranky, miserable, and very depressed. ;(( F 29 4 months

 4  birth control some water retention, spotting This pill has been the best I've ever been on! Reduced PMS, just feel better all around. Bleeding is very sporadic however, but light in my case. I have tried many pills that seemed to make me crazy, give me hormonal headaches, etc. F 31 3 months

 4  breastfeeding and birth control This medication was great when I was breastfeeding. I didn't notice a difference in the amount of milk I produced. There were no negative side effects. I took this birth control after the birth of my first son and then again after the birth of my second son. I nursed each for a little over a year. Once I stopped nursing I could no longer take it because I had almost continous break through bleeding. When on the combo pill I usually get migraines, with this pill I would get occasional headaches, but nothing severe. F 29 2 days

NOR-QD  (NORETHINDRONE):  This medication is used to prevent pregnancy. It is often referred to as the "mini-pill" because it does not contain any estrogen. Norethindrone (a form of progestin) is a hormone that prevents pregnancy by making vaginal fluid thicker to help prevent sperm from reaching an egg (fertilization) and changing the lining of the uterus (womb) to prevent attachment of a fertilized egg. If a fertilized egg does not attach to the uterus, it passes out of the body. This medication also stops the release of an egg (ovulation) in about half of a woman's menstrual cycles. While the "mini-pill" is more effective than certain other methods of birth control (such as condoms, cervical cap, diaphragm), it is less effective than combination hormone (estrogen and progestin) birth control because it does not consistently prevent ovulation. It is usually used by women who cannot take estrogen. To reduce the risk of pregnancy, it is very important to take this medication exactly as prescribed. Using this medication does not protect you or your partner against sexually transmitted diseases (such as HIV, gonorrhea, chlamydia).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
