Nora-Be, also referred to as the “mini-pill” because it only contains progestin, is an oral contraceptive pill. Nora-Be is a good option for women who can’t take estrogen, and it may cause fewer side effects (e.g. bloating, mood swings, weight gain) compared to estrogen-containing pills.

If you are experiencing heavy periods or painful cramps, Nora-Be can make your symptoms less severe. Our doctors are here to help - if you have heavy periods, let us know in the consultation so our doctors can make sure you find the right fit.
Like most modern birth control pills, Nora-Be lacks estrogen levels that are high enough to cause weight gain. Abundant recent evidence shows that there is no causal link between modern birth control and weight gain (aside from the shot, Depo Provera). If weight gain is a concern for you or you experience it after starting birth control, reach out to us so our doctors can discuss your options with you.
Birth control has long been prescribed as treatment for acne. If acne is a concern for you, let us know in the consultation and our doctors will help you find the right brand for you.
Nora-Be is effective 48 hours after you begin taking it. If you have vaginal sex within 48 hours of starting a progestin-only pill, you should use a back-up contraception (like condoms) to prevent pregnancy.
