I've been on Noriday for 3 months now and it's been a more positive experience than Cerazette, but I am ultimately stopping because I want to have a sex drive again and I won't be sexually active for some months. This pill did balance out my moods a lot, I experienced less headaches, my periods were lighter and less painful but I did experience spotting as soon as it was my ovulation week through to my periods which I continued to get. I also experienced hair loss, my hair tends to shed any but it was noticeably more and even came out in a clump one time. In the future I'll be using condoms whilst I contemplate a copper IUD as I think hormonal methods just aren't for me.

I was on Noriday for just over 6 months. While my skin improved and my boobs got bigger, this was not worth the other side effects. Not only did I have constant break through bleeding but it tanked my mental health. I had been lucky enough to have never suffered mental health issues but since going on the Noriday pill, I have been riddled with anxiety and started having semi-regular panic attacks. It also killed my motivation for life (including my sex drive). I came off it 3 months ago in favour of the non-hormonal IUD and I am STILL feeling the knock on effects from this pill. I still have significantly bad anxiety / panic attacks which I am hoping goes away once my hormones regulate themselves but right now it feels like a never ending nightmare. Obviously everyone reacts differently to the pill but I just wish someone had warned me of this possibility before I started taking it.

I tried Noriday after a bad experience with Azalea (lot of heavy, painful bleeding). Noriday suited me perfectly. I experienced regular periods monthly. My periods were fine, not too heavy. I would experience some cramping for a week before my period every 3 months or so which wasn't ideal but not a deal-breaker. My skin cleared up so well since taking Noriday. I didn't notice any major changes to my mood. Any weight gain (minor) was caused by inactivity and being in a relationship rather than the pill itself. I did find that my breasts did feel quite tender before and during my period and grew a small bit since.
