When I started taking this birth control I experienced head aches and pain in my legs that made me worry. After about the third week I experienced chest pains and severe mood swings. I have not had a perion while on this pill but that is the only upside to it.

I have been very satisfied with this birth control. I haven't experienced any emotional issues, acne or weight gain/loss. The only issue I have had no period. I have been taking this for about 3-4 months and no spotting or anything in that time. Obviously its nice to not have a period, but its also nerve-wracking at the same time.
