    Was on this pill for a few months and absolutely hated it!! My period was completely unpredictable. Had it one month, not the next, then had it two weeks into a brand new pack. Never knew when it was coming, that will NOT fly with me! Also had acne from it. I'm 29 and had fairly clear skin until I started taking this pill. My whole face broke out the entire time I was on this. Cramps wer ... Show Full Comment

    I took Loloestrin Fe for a little over 1 year. My results throughout my treatment were wonderful, in terms of not becoming pregnant, no worsening in my skin, and I never once had a full period! I had some slight spotting a few months after starting, but nothing since then. I switched my prescription today actually, and that is because I believe it caused me to have mood swings and become very irri ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking Lo Loestrin Fe for 2 and a half months- which coincides almost exactly with the time that I have been engaged. I wanted my body to get used to birth control before the wedding. I haven't had a period since I started taking Lo Loestrin, which I find very stressful. My breasts have been very tender and lumpy feeling, which is also stressful, since breast cancer is a fear of mi ... Show Full Comment

    I was on LoLoestrin for three months and it was a horrible experience. I had severe mood swings and was extremely emotional. It made keeping a functional relationship with my boyfriend very difficult. I went off of it and am now about to try a different pill, hopefully this one will have better side effects!

    Comment:
    I was originally prescribed Loestrin two years ago. The scrip was switched when the brand changed the name (same drug, new name). I've been on it for two years, and have never once had a regular period. I spot every two weeks, or if I have sex a certain way, it triggers spotting. My body did not change, I did not experience mood swings or anything else crazy, but the irregularity is no good. I ... Show Full Comment
