    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. Yet....I have felt completely horrible the past few months while on Azurette. I thought at first that it was just my body adjusting to the pill, but no. I have gained approximately 10 pounds, whereas on Kariva I gained zero. I just f ... Show Full Comment

    I recently visited my gyno after experience bleeding during sex, which according to the internet is nothing good.

Since I've been switched to azurette I've noticed intense mood swings, depression, increased appetite, stomach pains every now and then when I wait too long to eat, and weight gain!

    I've been on Kariva for 9 years without any problems, never a side effect. Since being switched to azurette i've had nothing but problems. My boobs hurt so bad they cannot be touched, sex hurts plus a whole lot of other things. I finally went to the doctor I find out that I have a cyst on my ovary (Usually people go on the pill to take care of this problem...) I've never had proble ... Show Full Comment
