This is my first time on birth control and my doctor recommended Azurette. I have been taking it for about 6-7 months. It has worked however, I am not the same person I use to be.

I have been taking this BC for about 2 months and I have noticed the mood swings, severe headaches. I went a couple days without them and that was a big mistake. It totally threw my cycle outta whack. I've had 2 periods in one month. I don't really like this one but my Dr swore by it.
