I am 20 years old, and had previously been taking 28-day Junel-Fe. My pharmacy no longer had Junel-Fe, and I was given Gildess-Fe. I have been on it for almost a year now and don't have many complaints. I used to have moderate-severe acne depending on the weather, and Gildess-Fe has cleared my skin up beautifully! I don't suffer headaches, pains, or drowsiness. Although, I do get a little ... Show Full Comment

I'm 17 years old. I got on this when my health center didn't have microgestin anymore, and a week into it, i had very heavy spotting for a good week, and I was extremely emotional this month, and cried a lot, not sure if it was just me or the pills, I immediately switched after my pack was over. Although, I must say my skin has been the best it's ever been, so thats the only plus.

I've been on this pill for 2 months after taking a 6 month break from birth control and this is by far the worst one I've ever had. My acne is worse than it's ever been, I'm moody and unmotivated, and the spotting has been non-stop. I stopped taking it the second I realized just how common these problems were on this brand, it's not worth it.

Comment:
I got on BC for preventative measures and also in hopes that it would regulate my period and ease some PMS symptoms. I've been taking this pill for a month now, and while I know that the body takes a while to get adjusted to new meds, the effects I'm experiencing are just not worth it. I am stopping ASAP. I've taken BC in the past for mostly skin-related issues, but after Accutane I ne ... Show Full Comment
