This pill honestly has a thousand downsides, I'll try and name all the side effects I had. I had severe bloating, increased food cravings (weight gain), horrible cramps, bled severely when menstruating, made mood swings 1000 times worse, made me have "dark" tho ... Show Full Comment

    I was switched to Ocella about 4 months ago. I noticed that my cycle got longer, and my cramps got way worse. It had gotten to the point to where my period was no longer lining up with the "placebo" week of the will. I actually had an appointment with my doctor to switch pills, but guess what?
