I would not recommend this bc. I am a healthy person. I have corrected vision. I am having two periods a month emotional problems. Now I am having extreme fatigue and no appetite. My vision has decreased dramatically and my eyes are sensitive. Now I am worried about my liver and eyesight. This needs to be taken off the market!

Do not take this birth control. I started taking this birth control because it was supposed to have a low hormone. Unfortunately the birth control gave me awful cystic acne.

So far, this is the BC with lest amount of side effects I have experienced, I was on orth, yazmin, mirena, now this, and im happier than with the others on this one. Only thing is, i am on third pack, my period was supposed to start 5 days ago on the 4th, now being the 5th of may, so I am wondering if it got rid of my period. If so, then i love it. I toook a p.test and it was negative too. :)

I had never had anxiety or panic attacks prior to starting this drug, however within a month of starting Lo Loestrin, I was hospitalized four times for anxiety attacks so bad I and ev ...

Comment:
I was placed on this medication for the following purposes: birth control, lighter periods, and acne. I have noticed positive improvements in my acne, which is a plus. Within the first month of being on this medication, I had my period for 13 days. It was relatively light, and I had no cramps so it wasn't a huge problem, but it was still an annoyance. I've noticed some water bloating s ... Show Full Comment
