    I switched to this because it was cheaper. Oh my Lord, I can't believe howmany women outthere have experienced the same side affects that I have! The bloating, the breast soreness, the not sleeping, the tiredness, the feeling of being pregnant! Why is this drug still available? I am switching back to my Yasmine and I seriously worn other woman about trying this just because it's cheaper. S ... Show Full Comment

    Horrible mood swings, headaches, crying spells, acne--within 1 week of switching to Ocella from Triphasil. MD advised to finish the month, but I will not take this medication again.

    I switched to Ocella from Femcon which was horrible, I cried all of the time and had two weeks of breakthrough bleeding in addition to my period. Ocella so far has been great, no complaints to make, except... I read two other posts about having light and decreased periods. I'm on my third placebo and still no period. Did anyone else experience a 'delayed' period?

    I've been on Ocella for about 3 months. And, since being switched from Yazmin to Ocella, I've had extreme soreness in my breasts, bloating, increased appetite, nauseous, and have been tired a lot.
