I am 19 yrs old and this is the first time I have used any form of birth control. My biggest complaint about this pill is fatigue and drowiness. I sleep so much, and could sleep all day if I let my body have its way. I'm a runner, and I even feel fatigued when I run now- making it difficult to maintain interest and speed during my running workouts. This is the first pill I have ever been on, a ...

Walgreens switched me a few months ago and told me Kariva and Azurette are basically the same thing with no real reason why. Now that my body is adjusting I have a really bad temper, can switch moods on the drop of a dime and I have absolutely no interest in anything sexual. Now I'm back on my period again after only a week and 1/2 and kinda wondering why? It's not heavy but feels like ... Show Full Comment
