    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. I figured it was the pills because I didn't have any of these problems when I was on Yazmin. I was scared for a moment because I thought I was pregnant. But, when I did some research on O ...

    I switched to this from Yasmin, and I am anything but happy with it. I'm much more irritable, I have more acne, and to everyone else it seems like I have more PMS. I also suffer from cramps for the first time while on birth control. I'm gonna see if I can go back to Yasmin. 2 Months of this is 2 months too much.

    Comment:
    Have felt generally sad, even though nothing else has changed in my life...so it has to be Ocella. Have found myself randomly crying everyday at little things that normally wouldn't phase me...must be the hormones. I am going to stop taking this immediately and am anxious to see if I cry less (not a very scientific test of the medication but certainly it's an easy one)! So nice to know I ... Show Full Comment

    I swithed from Yasmin and have had no problems at all. My periods are very light and no PMS or side effects. I'm sad I have to switch to something else.

    I am on month 3 and it will be my last. I will go back to using Yasmin! I don't care if I have to pay more. I have been depressed, irritable, and tense. My acne has been awful and my breasts are sore and swelling like when I was pregnant. Just awful! The only time I feel good is when I am on the non-hormone white pill for the one week. I have also been feeling ill and keep getting colds ... Show Full Comment
