Comment:
I had a ton of breakthrough bleeding when using this Pill. They said to wait 3 months and see if it got better but it didn't. It would go on forever (11 days) too! I was on it for 10 months and only had 2 "good" months with no breakthrough bleeding at all. Very annoying. I was switched to Orto Tricylen Lo and that one is much better for me. I have been on that one for 12 months ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was on femcon for over a year, and the only side effects I noticed were my breast size went up one cup size, and I was moody more often than I used to be. I never had other problems, and the biggest downside to this pill was the cost. I only switched to a new prescription because of the cost factor, since my insurance does not cover it.

The drug is rather good, did not cause any side effects on me, but is unaffordable even with insurance coverage.
