I have taken about 4 different birth control pills in the past, this one is by far the worst pill ever. I started taking it because I naturally have migraines and this is supposed to help prevent them...it doesnt I have had this migraine for 8 days (much like I did before). That is not even the worst part, I have been so angry. I honestly feel like saying I am going crazy is an understatment. I ... Show Full Comment

Although this has worked for me aka I haven't gotten pregnant I'm switching to something else as soon as possible. I'm halfway through my second pack and my emotions have never been so crazy.

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!

Being on azurette was a horrific experience for me; I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. I took this for one month after switching from Sprintec. 2 weeks into the pack I was a MESS. I was too nauseous to keep food down, I was having diarrhea, bloating and gas pain, I'd wake up with hot and cold flashes every night, I was depressed as all hell and crying at random for no reason at all. ...
