HATE THIS DRUG!! I got switched from another generic due to my pharmacy. Since I switched six months ago, I have gained weight like crazy (30 pounds), and have not had a period. I would like to have a period every three months, that way I know I am not prego. So, I end up spending a ton of money on pregnancy tests. Hate this pill! I am going back on Nuvaring.

Hoping the other generic form is bett ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was put on this birth control due to ovarian cysts and uterine fibroids. They are extremely painful and this is suppose to help. I am on week 9 (third pack). This is the first time I've taken Introvale. I have bouts of depression, but that could also be because of the winter months. I get cystic acne on my chin and forehead about twice a week. I have very minor bleeding varying in color- thi ... Show Full Comment
