    This is my first and last month with this pill. After 10 days I got on WebMD to do some research and read review cause I was spotting, the spotting lasted for about a week and then the feeling of nausea and that lasted until I finished the pack. I didn’t get my period while taking this pill so I end up taking a pregnancy test just to be sure (no period and feeling nauseated = pregnancy to me). Any ... Show Full Comment

    I'm just finishing my first month on Loloestrin Fe (after almost five years on Yasmin / Ocella), and I love it!

    I have been taking this pill for only two months, but I can already tell I don't like it. I already talked to my Dr. about switching. I noticed within the first two weeks of starting this pill I started getting big pimples. I haven't had pimples like that since middle school. I also noticed that I was getting a lot of cramping, pretty much every single day I took the pill and I usually nev ... Show Full Comment
