I am barely in my first week of taking this pill and the headaches and nausea have been so bad I'm thinking of coming off of it. I have spent every night with a severe headache and nausea and vomiting. I have taken other oral contraceptives that haven't given me this much trouble, especially this early. This pill isn't worth the trouble for me.

Comment:
After switching to this pill and taking it for 5 months I became very tired, moody and developed a blot clot in my thigh. I have been on other birth control pills and none of them made me feel the way this one did. I am lucky the blood clot didn't kill me. I would not take this pill.

I have been on birth control for 4 years and just recently switched to this one. I have been on it for 3 months and absolutely hate it. It has completely lowered my sex drive; I am super tired all the time, and have major anxiety. Also I have gained about 5 pounds, and have not been able to get it off. I have always been extremely in to working out and exercise 5 days a week and yet I can’t loose ... Show Full Comment
