This is hands down the worst birth control I have ever used. The pharmacist switch me from Junel (why? I don't know) and I decided to give it a try. Bad idea - 3 weeks in I have never had a problem with acne and I have huge craters around my mouth and along my jawline. They are also VERY painful even to just graze. I have had terrible headaches, to the point where I had to pull over my car an ... Show Full Comment

I am finishing my second pack of Gildess FE and I hate it. I used to take Junel and it worked great, but for some reason, Gildess effects my ph balance and I have had recurrent yeast infections.

I am not satisfied with this birth control at a ... Show Full Comment

This is the worst pill I've ever been on. I have been crazy emotional, got the worst cramps of my life, and started my period mid-month (sorry boyfriend). I'm switching ASAP.

I was given this generic for the last two packs rather than Microgestrin and I am switching back as soon as possible. I have been moody, bloated and crampy.
