I think this is my 4th pack that I have taken. My husband and I saved sex for marraige (making the excitement/sex drive for our wedding night after dating for a few years extremely high); however, as soon as I got on the pill, I noticed my sex drive decreased a TON (annoying) and I became much more irritable.

My experience is completely different. I didn't gain any weight, I dont PMS at all since I've been on this birth control. I no longer cramp like used too. I've probably had about one bad cramp, unlike when I wasn't on birth control I would have terrible cramps every month. So yeah I love this birth control. (P. S. My gynecologist told me that birth control pills won't make yo ... Show Full Comment
