I hate this medication. I will say it does help out with my heavy periods and cramps (for the most part). But over the one that I have been taking this product, I have gained a lot of weight, and worse my skin is breaking out like CRAZY. O have been struggling with my acne for most of my life, until my dermatologist gave me cleanser to start using... after a couple of months of the cleanser, my fa ... Show Full Comment

The pharmacy gave me this instead of the Junel, ensuring me that it was completely the same. I have been so moody, my boobs hurt, I'm getting 2 periods a month (i wasnt having much of one at all with Junel), the worst cramps (no cramps with Junel), and my normally clear skin is breaking out. I gave this the three months my body should need to get used to it, but it looks like I'm going to ... Show Full Comment

I'm willing to pay for a different pill even though this i ... Show Full Comment

Switched to Gildess from Loestrin 24 Fe because of the cost. I've only been on it for 3 weeks but so far I'm not noticing much of a difference. I did break out along my jawline pretty quickly into the pack but it's clearing up now with no new breakouts. The only other noticeable thing is my breasts feel a little fuller. No weight gain, mood seems normal, no spotting. I hope this keeps ... Show Full Comment

THIS IS THE WORST BIRTH CONTROL I HAVE EVER USED. I got switched from JUNEL(which was finally working good for me) to GILDESS without the pharmacy letting me know JUNEL has some kind of production hold back... So I said whatever I'm gonna give this a try... After just few days I was cramping like crazy which is the reason I mainly use BC to help with my terrible cramps... No nausea, no headach ...
