Switched to Gildess from Loestrin 24 Fe because of the cost. I've only been on it for 3 weeks but so far I'm not noticing much of a difference. I did break out along my jawline pretty quickly into the pack but it's clearing up now with no new breakouts. The only other noticeable thing is my breasts feel a little fuller.

Very dissapointed. I have been taking this pills for two month and already feel that I gained weight and have been moody. On the top of it I had dryiness in vigina, headaches, nausea, and mood change. I know maybe 2 month is not enough time for getting my body to get used to it, and I would continue taking it, but in the middle of the second month taking my periods started. It is the WORST p ...

I have been on this pill for about 3 months. I have gained weight depsite eating healthy and working out. I have been extra moody and I have bad headaches before my period. Also, I have been getting hot flashes, which is extra odd for me because I am always cold. I have never been this unhappy with my birth control and I am changing it as soon as I can!
