I originally was prescribed this medication to control skin acne and thus birth control would be more of a nice side perk to it, however, I saw no effect on my skin and about a week or two after using it I got strong CHEST PAINS.

The only complaints I have with this one was that my boobs hurt ALL THE TIME and very depressed feeling for most of the time. Other than that it was ok.
