    I gave Jolessa 6 months of my time and I hate it. Hate. I was taking Sprintec  (orthotrycyclin lo) for about 8 years prior to that and loved it with the exception of the hormonal migraine I would get the day before starting.

    Don't use this drug because it can cause breast cancer. This drug is very dangerous. You should never go 90 days without a menstruel, that's very dangerous. It can cause an over expression of estrogen which causes breast cancer. I am a Former user of Jalissa and now I am a stage 4 breast cancer patient!!!!!

    Two weeks after starting this medication I started spotting very heavy and this continued everyday for the entire 90 day cycle. I finally switched after finishing the first three month supply. I also gained 10 lbs. during that 90 days and have never had a weight fluctuation like that before. There was no changes to my diet or exercise routine. I also noticed that if you do not take this at the EXA ... Show Full Comment
