    I usually dont write reviews, I was given this about 3 months ago and made me have the worst cyctic acne! this is the only birthcontrol that I ever had a issue with. I feel this kind has made me gain weight, I constantly crave sweet stuff and I never really did on my other birthcontrol pills have taken in the past.Definetly telling my gyn to get me off this brand!
