Comment:
I am relieved to find that these many reviews have voiced the same side effects I have been experiencing. I have been taking Gildess for three months and have never been more moody in my life. I have two periods a month and have had increased fatigue and acne. Mostly, the lack of emotional control and irritability have been difficult for me. I have given this pill a chance and will now save my san ... Show Full Comment

My pharmacy gave me this instead of Junel, which had been working okay for me. From day one of taking this pill I was extremely nauseous.

My acne that had been cleared up when using a different birth control began reappearing. The spotting between my periods were random and heavy. On top of all of this, I became much more moody than usual. I would not recommend this birth control to ... Show Full Comment

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.
