Well it does it's job as a birth control but that's about all it does. I've been taking this for 7 months and they've been miserable. I've gained almost 10 pounds, my breasts are so tender, especially around my nipples, my periods are incredibly heavy, and I've completely lost my sex drive. I'm seeing a doctor soon and I'm definitely switching to anything else.

I have been on Azurette for over 3 weeks now. I am a person who has always had the side effect of vomits while being on the pill.

Previously, I was on Ortho Tricyclen Lo, which worked as a birth control medication but made me really moody once I started Thyroid treatment. So far on Azurette has given me terrible acne on my upper back, night sweats, and fits of crying for ... Show Full Comment

I started taking this bc about 3 months ago recommended by my reproductive endocrinologist. I tried the nuva ring as a teenager but I hated it. Anyway, 10 years later (I'm 24 now) here I am. The first week of pills I break out, but not badly, just like one or two pimples around my chin. I have difficulty remembering to take it... I take mine at night now with dinner, the first time I tried it ... Show Full Comment

I started taking lo loestrin as I got it as a sample, when I realized it was $90 a month, my gyno said let's switch you to azurette it's generic and cheaper. After having no side effects except acne from lo loestrin, this was a slap in the face. I am almost done with my second pack of azurette and my breasts are so tender, I have horrible mood swings, will lay in bed and cry all day with n ... Show Full Comment
