    I had very painful periods which caused severe pain before I started taking this pill. My periods would be very heavy at times and would last anywhere from a half a day to two and a half days. On Balziva, I have no pain whatsoever, and my periods are extremely light (light enough for panty liners), lasting only 1 day. I do not have any mood swings, and my high sex drive is greater than ever.

I gained about 30 pounds and looked swollen or bloated all the time. My boobs went from B's to DD's, which may sound good, but I outgrew all my clothes and experienced severe back pain because of them. I got headaches all the time an ... Show Full Comment

My breasts get really tender around the 3rd week before the week my period is due and as far as my periods, the flow is lighter but I am still bleeding for five days. I don't have any mood swings, nothing out of the ... Show Full Comment
