    After being on Loestrin Fe24 for almost 5 years now, I was switched to this medication because Loestrin was discontinued. I have been on this birth control for less than 2 weeks now and could not be more dissatisfied. I have been EXTREMELY emotional and exceptionally anxious, depressed with mild panic attacks.

    I have been spotting pretty much nonstop since I started. I spotted so much that I just continued to take the second month without taking a break week because I felt I had bled enough already. Also it definitely has caused a yeast infection that I can't get rid of for over a week now. Not happy about it.

    I've been on Gildess for about two months now and it's probably the worst birth control I have ever taken. I recently switched from Loestrin because it was discontinued apparently which was really unfortunate since it was perfect, my skin was so clear, my periods were light, and it was just an amazing birth control overall. Anyways, my main issue with this birth control is that I have gott ... Show Full Comment

    This medication is horrible! I got a script 3 months ago and all 3 months Ive spotted to the point of wearing tampons. That is not what I expected and I just took myself off because this is not normal at all.
