I've only been using this particular pill for a few months. I have terrible acne, feel depressed, my mood is just generally bad, I find myself being easily irritated, I have leg cramps, back pain and extended periods with spotting in between. Needless to say, I won't be on this very much longer.

I have been on this BC for a little over a month now. I have a problem with headches already and a couple of weeks after taking this BC, my headaches have started intensifying and are not going away. For me, this bc has def contributed to worsening my headaches to almost a non bearable point. I am stopping this BC all together.. I never had these issues when I use to be on YAZ.

I've been taking this birth control for a year now, and I definitely would say it does the job. It eliminated my acne, and I actually lost weight. I do have spotting after my period is suppose to be over but I think that's pretty normal. There are a few things about this medication that is making me seriously debate getting on something different though.. I have become very emotional, and ... Show Full Comment
