Comment:
Third month taking treatment, first time birth control user. Used to be level-headed and relaxed, now will take any excuse to lash out at someone. Has worsened previously controlled anxiety issues. Has not wanted to have sex with partner since completing first pack of pills (whole reason for using pills). Exploring other options- would NOT recommend to anyone.

It has worked in preventing pregnancy and easy to use. You just take 1 pill a day, but the side effects have been HORRIBLE. My stomach is always bloated, worst stomach pains, constipation, tender breasts all the time. I stressed for 3 months thinking I was pregnant. I hate this birth control. It also made my acne terrible.

Starting third week of pills. Extremely emotional. The second week I had RAVENOUS cravings which subsided but the water retention I presently have is very noticeable. My breasts are painful and swollen all the time…

Good things: no bloating, breasts haven't grown, haven't gained weight, not pregnant, lighter period (2-3 days), no mood swings. However, it's not great for your skin. I think my acne got a bit worse after I started using it.

Just like some of the other reviews, I've been on estrostep first-ever. Pharmacy gave me this generic and I'm at the end of my second month taking it. I too feel bloaty all the time, and gassy. Periods seem lighter, abd not as steady as with estrostep. I will be switching back next month
