I tried to rate this as honestly as possible. I had extreme anxiety and mood swings while taking this.

DO NOT USE THIS BIRTH CONTROL! I took it 1 day and within 30 minutes of taking the pill I began to feel side effects. My vision was blurry, I was dizzy, nauseous, and for a headache. I took it at 7:30pm and at 1:30am I threw up. I couldn't sleep and felt terrible after taking the pill. Worst bc I have ever tried!

I have been on this for about 10 months. I never really had crazy side effects from it. At first, I would be moody and irritated, but that is normal starting a pill. My period was light for the first couple of months than the last 3 months have been so extremely heavy. I went to my normal doctor about 3 months ago for a check up, he said my blood pressure was slightly high. I never had a problem w ... Show Full Comment

I've been taking this BC since I was switched from Kariva by Walgreens over a year ago. I couldn't figure out why I had no sex drive, vaginal dryness, pain during intercourse, extreme moodiness and anger, fatigue, breast tenderness, weight gain, and acne. When I switched insurances I had to do some research on some other BCs and stumbled across this page. Wow, I can't believe this is h ... Show Full Comment
