    I was given this generic for the last two packs rather than Microgestrin and I am switching back as soon as possible. I have been moody, bloated and crampy. I've had quite a few days of break through bleeding also. I hadn't had a period for several months on Microgestin. I'm really surprised by the difference in generics for the same medication.

    Sure, It did it's job. But as soon as I switched from my usual Junel to this, I noticed a difference. I started breaking out so much, it's cleared up after the first month but i've also noticed that my mood as been extremely irritable and my appetite as well as cravings have been pretty bad, normally i would be fine with the Junel. I decided to get off the Gildess for a month because m ... Show Full Comment

    ACNE! This was substituted for my usual JUNEL and it is crater city on my face as well. Called my doc and the pharmacy to only send me JUNEL. Junel could not arrive soon enough as I've been on Gildess for 1.75 packets.

    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
