    Well, I've only been on this for a week so far, and this is my first time taking a BC pill. During the first few days, I was getting mild to moderate nausea and dizziness. It felt like I was on a boat! But, the last few days have been nice - nausea has disappeared, and so has the dizziness. So far, I'd say my body is adjusting well.

Mood swings, you have those even when you are not taking birth control but it isn't ... Show Full Comment

    This birth control has worked wonders for me. I began taking it because I had very irregular periods that were heavy and long. During the first month on this pill, I did experience slight nausea but it subsided very quickly. I did gain about five pounds with this pill but it went to all the right places luckily. Other than that I have experienced no negative side effects in the two years that I ha ... Show Full Comment
