This is the first birth control I've been on (started at 17, now 18 y/o). I started in August, so it's been almost 8 months. I had a regular period the first month, and haven't had one since. Quite nerve-wracking at first, but eventually I got used to it. It seems as though a lack of a period is common on this pill so I'm not too worried. I did go through a bit of depression during ...

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..

Comment:
I switched to the Lo Loestrin FE from another birth control pill. As I've been taking a birth control pill for years, I needed to switch as I was spotting too much. I don't have trouble on remembering to take it every day at the same time. I take it at 9 p.m. and noticed that during the first month I was terribly nauseous in the morning and I didn't have my period at all which made me ... Show Full Comment
