Experience

I began taking Noriday a few months ago because my previous combined pill gave me an inflamed cervix and a lot of discharge. My doctor then prescribed Noriday to me to see if it would work better for me. Although it didn’t give me any unusual discharge or any, I would say serve side effects, Noriday gave me the worst acne I have ever had in my entire life. I had a rash around my mouth and chin at first and then I got terrible cystic acne on my cheeks and then I broke out into another rash on my forehead. I had to go to the dermatologist twice in 2 months. I was forced to stop taking Noriday and since I have, my acne has completely stopped. I still have pretty visible dark spots but at least those will heal and fade. I know birth control is different for ever women but I would not recommend this one in the fear of another women getting this type of acne. I started taking Noriday this year in October and had to stop it by the end of November. Worst birth control experience of my life.

Experience after taking

After I stopped taking Noriday, my sex drive has gone up and my skin began to clear. Literally from one day to another my skin started to look better after I stopped taking Noriday.
