    I would like to say first, when I was prescribed these, I looked up every little piece of information on these pills. I started to get super anxious and scared because of the higher blood clot rate. It still makes me worry every once in a while though. I have just finished the first pack. I have noticed my mood has gotten better, no crazy anger sprees or anything. The cramps aren't so bad. I d ... Show Full Comment

    Absolutely love this birth control option! I tend to get headaches with other OCPs and I've experienced none with this medication (finally!). I was nervous to try it with all the bad hype around Yaz, but I've had ZERO negative side effects. I'd absolutely recommend it to healthy young females! (Preferably non-smokers to avoid blood clots.)

    I have been on this pill for about 7 months. In the past several weeks my mood swings have changed a lot. I am crying more frequently, lashing out on my friends and family members. My cycle has stopped but I have been having some spotting problems since being on it. I am going to call my doctor and see if I can be changed to something else. My acne has also increased since being on this and I have ... Show Full Comment

    Overall this is a good bc pill. I have tried many from Ortho tri cyclene lo to microgestin. This pill did give me head aches the first month. I actually lost about 5 lbs on it. It cures my pms/pmdd!! It does dull my sex drive but so does every pill I have tried. My worst side effect is nausea and acid reflux. I take it late in the day to reduce that. Over all it is he best pill I have tried.

    I have been on this medication for over 5 years. I started taking it for acne after several other treatments (specifically Acutane) did not work. Around March of 2014, my prescription ran out and I was unable to get back to my doctor's office until August of 2014. My acne came back around May 2014 and in August, I was prescribed Vestura. I took Vestura for two months and completely stopped bir ... Show Full Comment
