Yeah I've been taking the Gildess for 9 months now and I hate it. I was on Loestrin for 5 years and it worked great for me. Had to switch to this b/c of insurance.

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

I have been on this pill for 5 months now, after being given to me by my doc because of cost. I have acne on my chest (which I NEVER had before), moodiness like crazy, headaches just short of migraines, and weight gain. I have not changed my eating habits and have gained back 10 of the 20 pounds I worked so hard to lose!!! My breasts hurt the 4th month that I was on them so bad it felt like I was ...
