Comment:
In four years, I have experienced no weight gain, no mood swings, appetite changes, or any other negative side effects. Stopped having menstrual periods after a few months and considering this an enormous positive. This is the third BC pill I've tried and I'm thrilled with it. My periods used to be very painful and irregular.

But I would recommend the birth control. I will switch to a ... Show Full Comment
