    I gave this 3 stars of satisfacation because as a form of BC it has worked well. I started taking Lo Lo estrin FE 3 months ago. The first month was torture. I felt sick everyday (which is to be expected) I also had some breakouts which were not a big deal. The second & now I'm on my third month have been just acne left & right! I'm switching because I am someone who NEVER had acne. ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking this for 5 weeks. I was apprehensive because when I had taken birth control before, I gained about 10 pounds. I told my doctor my concerns and she prescribed me Lo Loestrin and I have actually lost weight! I will keep taking it because the only complaints I have is a little joint pain which I looked up and turns out it is a side effect and I had some spotting when I first starte ... Show Full Comment

    So after being off of birth control for a while, I decided to get back on when I started a new relationship. Thought low estrogen sounded pretty nice! Anyway, I must say that I have NEVER felt crazier in my life. First month was alright--some break-through bleeding, minimal mood swings, no weight gain. Now I have been on it for about five months and I honestly feel like a different person...not in ... Show Full Comment

    I've been on Lo Loestrin Fe for 2 months now. I was originally 5'4" and 100 pounds and I lost 8 on the pill. I'm so underweight and I feel terrible. It makes me constantly starving, but I'll start eating and after a few bites I feel like I'm going to puke. I am constantly nauseous and I have abdominal pain that causes me to double over, wake me up at night, or cry out in m ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    Pricey ($10 off with discount card, but still around $75) but WELL WORTH it for me. After some spotting in the first few weeks, I have had very little unscheduled bleeding, which is one of the more bothersome side effects I've experienced with other OCs. My mood is stable and much improved relative to being on other OCs as well. I have taken it continuously (skipped the inactive pills) for ... Show Full Comment
