    Started this drug in August. After reading these reviews I was led to believe that I was just freaking myself out after reading these reviews and was imagining the weight gain, the pimples, and the mood swings. I stopped for a month to experience what it was like to be off the drug completely. I experienced an awesome libido, weight loss, and a constant good mood. After the month was off, I decide ...

    OKAY, GILDESS FE IS NOT THR SAME AS LOESTRIN! no matter what the stupid companies tell you. I was on loestrin, switched to godless when it was discontinued. My body freaked out right away. Bad. I got cystic acne all over my chinn and forehead. From the moment I took it I never had a clear face. One pimple would leave and two more giants would appear. I was so moody and hated the world. Mostly my b ... Show Full Comment

    The worst birth control I've ever used. I was taking Junel, which I liked, but my pharmacy switched me to Gildess. My boobs hurt SO bad for two weeks out of the month. I've gained five pounds with no change in eating habits. Anxiety has been horrible, and more break outs. Two months ago I completely missed my period, which scared me half to death. Turns out it's just a side effect of t ... Show Full Comment
