    I have been taking this birth control for about a year now. I got it or acne and birth control. I am still not pregnant so the medicine has done its job! However, sex is MISERABLE because this birth control has severely decreased my natural lubrication and caused vaginal dryness. My acne hasn't cleared up anymore than it has with other birth controls. I have probably had maybe 5 periods within ... Show Full Comment

    Although this medication has been effective regarding preventing pregnancy, I have not had a period in over 6 months. At month 4, I called my doctor and they told me that this is a typical response to this birth control, but I cannot imagine that this is healthy as I mood into my thirties. As a result of this (most likely), I have gained a significant amount of weight. Previously I was taking Loe ... Show Full Comment

    I was originally on Lo estrin 24 and absolutely loved it, sadly it got discontinued. After that I was prescribed Minastrin (worst birth control ever, I do not recommend it) after being dissatisfied with that I was prescribed Gildess. I have only been on it a few weeks but I have the WORST nausea! Waking up out of a dead sleep in the middle of the night to throw up. Has anyone else has this side ef ... Show Full Comment

    I started this a year and a half ago after getting a blood clot from Yaz (it was so painful) I will say I spot a lot and missed 4 periods at one point (but I wasn't pregnant)s o that's a bit random. On a plus, I'm young and get around quite a bit and I've never been pregnant even when I missed pills and did-the-do. Very effective. No health problems.

    I was switched to this pill due to loestrin being discontinued. I've been on it for 5 months and absolutely HATE it. No sex drive, constantly spotting, migraines, acne and extremely moody. My poor husband is getting the short end of the stick. Thankfully loestrin is back and now being called lomedia 24fe. Once this pack of gildess is done then I will be switching. I just want my no periods and ... Show Full Comment
