Either my doctor/insurance company/pharmacy switched my prescription of Ocella to Zarah. Results? Awful. I have painful acne around my chin, and been having stomach aches for the past month (they recently changed it). Ocella treated my acne perfectly, and I really miss it. Zarah makes me feel awful and gross.

I love this birth control however, I never got a period with this birth control. My face was clear. I took this all throughout high school. I ended up switching only because I have sex a lot and me and my bf agreed I should switch because I wasn't getting a period and it's not normal for a woman to not get a period.

So I starting taking Zarah after ocella was giving me an bad discharge with an odor. At first I thought I loved Zarah. I went out of my way to go to a Harmon's pharmacy to get it rather than another grocery store. I recently changed insurance and I can no longer get Zarah. I've began taking a new pill which I cannot remember the name of but I have now realized how many PROBLEMS I actually ... Show Full Comment

I have been on birth control since age 16. I went from Yasmin to yaz, to ocella to now, zarrah. I am 24 now. Every time that I have gone off the pill to have a period I experience these crazy night sweats. It happens for the first 3 days on average. I went to a new obgyn, he said that I didn't have to have a period and the night sweats were from the hormones. It has been almost 3 months since ... Show Full Comment
