I've had two periods for the past two months I've been taking this birth control. I have also noticed that I am moody and depressed. I wish I read the reviews before I started taking it.

This is the absolute worst birth control I've ever taken. I have been so moody and crazy, I've been breaking out, gaining weight, no motivation, depressed and anything else you can imagine. I'm changing back to yaz immediately which always did me perfectly. Gildess is Awful!!!!!
