I just started taking birth control for the first time last year. I started taking Lutera and it was awful! I was constantly emotional and always hungry. I recently switched to Azurette and have been very pleased! I have been a little more tired in the afternoons but overall no other side effects.

When first taking BC this time around I was on Mircette and things seemed to go well, as far as I can remember 3-4 years ago. Insurance changed and then came Kariva and about 10lbs in year one.

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 ...
