    This medication kept me from getting pregnant, and that's the only good thing I can say about it. Like many other women on here, I have experienced extreme side effects from Ocella.

    I switched to Ocella from Yasmin a couple of months ago to save money. I have had the worst experience with Ocella. My breasts have been really sore and I am bloated all the time! I thought I was the only one having problems. I am switching back to Yasmin. I hope it hasn't done any other damage to my body!!!
