I've loved Gildess. I've heard that women with heavy bleeding tend to spot continually while on Gildess, but I've had no problem whatsoever. I didn't gain a pound when I started it, haven't spotted at all, have predictable (and much lighter) periods, and haven't experienced any mood swings or changes in affect (depressive symptoms, etc.). Highly recommended!

I'm planing on going to the doctor to be switched to a different type of pill.

Weight gain! I workout everyday and eat healthy, all of a sudden I started putting on weight in my stomach and realized it was 6 weeks into being on this pill. I'm also experiencing irritability, I will be changing pills ASAP!

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. While I don't want to "blame" the pill for my actions, I did notice that th ... Show Full Comment
