    I have taken birth control for about 15 years, but only started on Gildess last year (less than 6 months ago). I never had side effects from birth control until I started taking this pill.

Fatigue, dizziness, changes in mood, night sweats, increased appetite, extremely sore and tender breasts ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    I had SEVERE muscle pain & weakness (myalgia) in my shoulder along with numbness & tingling while taking this pill. I didn't put it together that the pain was related to the pill (although both started at the same time) until I spent nearly $1000 on physical therapy and nothing was helping - not the pain meds, not the PT exercises, nothing!! Within a week of stopping the pill, my pain ... Show Full Comment
