I have been taking nora-be for almost 3 months and since I started it I have had terrible periods. The first month I had a period for at least two weeks and then a few days later it came back. It chilled out a bit but I keep having random bleeding and terrible headaches. I need to know if this is normal and if I should switch. They put me on it because I have acrocyanosis. No other reasons for this kind. I just need protection against pregnancy.
