After taking this pill for almost 7 weeks, I currently have the worst acne I have ever had. Huge cysts on my face and also below my jaw line. I have gained around five pounds and am stopping this pill. I would rather have bad cramps than deal with the side effects of this pill!

My pharmacist switched me to Glidess vs. the Microgestin I took before. They said it would look different but it was the same thing just generic. My husband mentioned I have been extra moody lately and is everything ok? I have been irritable and my face is breaking out too, also with red patches as mentioned from another reviewer. I have gained weight so I have been going to the gym 5 days a ... Show Full Comment

HATE HATE HATE. I think it's effective (I sure hope it is!) but I've been moody, nauseous, and worst, have been breaking out like crazy since being on it! I will never, EVER take Gildess again... I'm now insisting upon the Microgestin I was originally prescribed.

I was on Junel Fe for almost 2 years when the pharmacy said it was unavailable so for the same price 19.99 I got gildess. Besides extreme moodiness the first week I have been fine. This is only my first month but my period came regularly, I have minimal cramps and I'm not pregnant! wooo

My insurance upped the cost of Microgestin to pick up at the store so I was sent Gildress FE 1/20 instead. I have been extremely moody and I feel bloated 2 weeks out of the month. I have already renewed my microgestin... I will pay the extra.
