I have PCOS, so don’t get regular periods and take the mini pill in order to balance my hormones. However, I don’t feel that it truly does balance them; I frequently get break through bleeding, feel bloated, have very low energy and experience cramps even when not on my period. As there is no breaks in this pill cycle, I never know if bleeding is a real period or an effect from this pill which concerns me. If I forget to take this pill, it can trigger a hormonal migraine.

Noriday worked well for me with regards to my mental health. I didn't notice any major change, unlike other progesterone only pills. However, I had UTIs constantly for the whole time I was on it. I've been off Noriday for a week and my bladder feels back to normal!

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.
