This BCP cleared my skin completely, and even took the oiliness away. My boobs got bigger. The skin on my hair even seemed to be lighter/less coarse. So it pretty much controlled all of my hormone-related problems. I also lost weight. It lessened my cramps a tiny bit...but my periods were still pretty long, and somewhat heavy. The pill did cause me to lose my sex drive, and also made me very an ... Show Full Comment

My first month was pretty rough. Moody and tired, much like many other women. After starting my second pack, my moods aren't nearly as bad as they were before- my boyfriend hasn't complained about my attitude in a while! Although, I did have a moment when my son scraped off my toe nail polish AND I didn't get the meal I asked for (understandable, right :) I have noticed some breast ten ... Show Full Comment

My family looks at me like I have just lost my mind. They don't know what to sa ... Show Full Comment

I have been taking this BC for the last year. The first 6 months I had no problem. This last 6 months I have gained 15 pounds, my mood has severely changed...I have no energy, extremely hard to get out of bed, tired all the time. My sex drive has decreased heavily. I have palpitations and anxiety attacks over little things that never used to bother me. I thought it was me all this time until I rea ... Show Full Comment

I have been taking Azurette for approx. 6 weeks now. Since I began taking it, I have had extreme breast tenderness and they have gotten bigger (but I'm already a D so not a great thing for me.) Also, I'm experiencing cramping at many times throughout the month and some extreme mental changes. I have been unnaturally angry and aggressive. I am generally a positive and happy person, but for ... Show Full Comment
