I'm 18 & this is my first prescribed birth control meds so i'm not familiar with all of this. My ovaries have hurt& i've felt awful on this. Random pains in my stomach & fatigue. I also sense a yeast infection starting, which i've never had. I don't recommend this.

This is hands down the worst birth control I have ever used. The pharmacist switch me from Junel (why? I don't know) and I decided to give it a try. Bad idea - 3 weeks in I have never had a problem with acne and I have huge craters around my mouth and along my jawline. They are also VERY painful even to just graze.
