Other than that I have experienced no negative side effects in the two years that I ha ... Show Full Comment

I started taking this birth control half a year ago. First birth control I have ever been on and it has made me have such a terrible experience for both me and my relationship. I get random head aches, depression and anxiety to the point where I feel stuck in a dark box, and a good amount of weight gain.My sex drive has been very low and I feel like a crazy person 24/7. Sometimes I will get my per ... Show Full Comment

This pill made me feel crazy. My hormones were off. Sex drive was down and chewed a patch of my hair off. All in a months time. I will not be taking this mess anymore
