    Effective birth control, cleared up my skin, no weight gain or bad side effects. Only possible "negative" (but it's not that big of a deal to me) is that I'm always veryyyy hungry a few days before my period.

    I was switched for Yasmin to Ocella (without notice) by my pharmacy. The pharmacist told that it was the just generic Yasmin but assured me it was same medication. It's NOT. I was on Yasmin for 3 years with ZERO problems. In fact, it was great. While on Yasmin my skin was clear (I got compliments on it), my period lasted 3-4 days, and I wasn't moody. However after being on Ocella for 3 m ... Show Full Comment

    I took Ocella for about 4 months before switching to a different brand. While taking it, not only was my skin BEAUTIFULLY clear, with not a single breakout or blemish (even if I skipped washing my face/removing my makeup), but I also went up nearly TWO cup sizes! My periods were amazingly light and short, with NO break-through bleeding. Unfortunately, I also had unexplained dizziness about once ... Show Full Comment
