OKAY, GILDESS FE IS NOT THR SAME AS LOESTRIN! no matter what the stupid companies tell you. I was on loestrin, switched to godless when it was discontinued. My body freaked out right away. Bad. I got cystic acne all over my chinn and forehead. From the moment I took it I never had a clear face. One pimple would leave and two more giants would appear. I was so moody and hated the world. Mostly my b ... Show Full Comment
