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.

I have been taking lo loestrin fe for 2 years now. Positives-No menstrual cycle each month, little/no mood swings, no weight gain, acne cleared up, easy to use.

If you cannot afford this, you're basically out ... Show Full Comment

Comment:

Been on it almost a year, the first month I bled in between periods. Be sure you take it at the exact same time daily. Some months I didnt get a period at all or it was very late. It took months for my period to sync up with the pills. I had no side effects and love this pill! I Have high blood pressure and this hasn't raised my BP at all like nuvaring did or another Bc pill I tried
