    I have tried going on lo loestrin twice and both time I've hated it. Only plus was that my breasts had swelled up. I had terrible mood swings, somewhat depression like feelings. Acne had gotten somewhat worse, and i now have Melasma which is utterly annoying. Do not take this!

    Used to take this when I had a boyfriend. Side effects: breast tenderness, moodiness (slight), light periods (yes!). Price was too high so I'm switching to LoEstrin24 FE..
