    I am another unhappy user, and find great relief to read that other women have experienced similar problems with this pill. I switched from Yasmin to Ocella when it went generic a few months ago. I felt funny after the first month, but the pharmacist assured me that Ocella is exactly the same as Yasmin, so I continued and didn't reflect much more on that until now, when side effects have gotte ...

    Ocella is just the same as Yasmin. I have had NO difference in side effects since switching. It's been about 2 months now and I was on Yasmin for over 2 years. Ocella (just like Yasmin) makes my skin perfect and made my chest bigger--which I won't complain about! It also makes my periods very regular (Weds-Sun) with NO cramping or any other sign than the obvious. Please don't let peopl ... Show Full Comment

    Well, I haven't gotten pregnant, but I feel it. I've never had acne before taking Ocella, but I DO NOW. I have occassional pelvic cramping, breast tenderness, mood swings, and weight gain. I was put on this b/c because my doctor said it would work well with the anxiety med I've been taking, but as soon as I started Ocella my Celexa lost it's potency. Now I'm just a moody, cramp ...

    I switched from Yasmine to Ocella a month ago, as the pharmacy asked me if it would bother me to take a generic. I broke out in terrible hives; with welts from my eyes to my ankles. I segregated by morning pills and found it was Ocella causing the allergic reaction. I called the pharmacist and the gynecologist, and they both stated it was unusual as Yasmine and Ocella have the same active ingre ... Show Full Comment
