    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'm bloated on and off through out the month not to mention I am spotting randomly when I shouldn't be having a period. I would go months at a time with no periods or spotting on the Loestrin.

    This is hands down the worst birth control I have ever used. The pharmacist switch me from Junel (why? I don't know) and I decided to give it a try. Bad idea - 3 weeks in I have never had a problem with acne and I have huge craters around my mouth and along my jawline. They are also VERY painful even to just graze.

    I am finishing my second pack of Gildess FE and I hate it. I used to take Junel and it worked great, but for some reason, Gildess effects my ph balance and I have had recurrent yeast infections. I just got over one about a week ago but as I continue to take the Gildess I am noticing my discharge is becoming white-ish in color and smells yeasty again.

    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 ...

    This is the worst pill I've ever been on. I have been crazy emotional, got the worst cramps of my life, and started my period mid-month (sorry boyfriend). I'm switching ASAP.
