I just got off of this birth contol. I became severly depressed, angry all of the time, had no energy, and was constantly sleeping because of lack of motivation to do anything else. Within a week of going off of it, I am myself again! I laugh, have so much energy, am not sleeping all of the time, and am not depressed at all!!! It is a miracle. :) Please do not take this birth control.

Terrible. I have never taken a birth control that CONVINCED me that I was pregnant from day one of taking it. I switched from Loestrin 24 to Azurette to get away from the mood swings and the feeling pregnant feeling and I totally got a phantom pregnancy! I'm taking myself off this to go back to something else.

Thanks gals for posting your experience. I had used Mirette and Kariva in the past with minimal side effects, and was given Azurette by my pharmacy as a generic about a year ago. Since taking Azurette I have had everything from frequent yeast infections, painful sex, low to no libido, and fatigue. The only way I discovered the connection between these side effects and Azurette was when I recent ... Show Full Comment
