Be careful with Azurette! I was on Kariva and then Walgreens switched me over to Azurette as well. I have been on Azurette for a year now and just getting off because I've been dealing with monthly yeast infections. My doctor figured out that the last week "period week" of pills contains estrogen which has been giving me yeast infections every month. My body needs that last week off. ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I had been on Kariva, when my pharmacy changed my prescription to Azurette. They told me that it was essentially the same thing, the same dose and everything.

I have gained approximately 10 pounds, whereas on Kariva I gained zero. I just f ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I recently visited my gyno after experience bleeding during sex, which according to the internet is nothing good. However, the more I thought about it, the more I realized I had begun experiencing symptoms since switching from Kariva to Azurette about eight months ago.
