    This medicine has served as a great birth control/contraceptive but has been absolutely terrible otherwise. I just finished my 4th month on this pills and have finally realized that the severe mood swings (crying spells) and bad headaches throughout the month are NOT worth it.

    I have experienced a lot of bloating and stomach pain with this medication. I've experienced nausea and diarrhea, as well as sore breasts. It is also a very costly medication despite the fact that there is nothing particularly special about it other than having folic acid. I switched to a new medication a month after starting Safyral.

    Since starting this birth control, my self esteem has plummeted due to my weight gain. I always feel bloated and crave sweets, and have headaches from time to time. Finally, my sex drive isn't the same. I feel like a man with ED. However, my periods are not as heavy, but i'll take heavy periods any day to taking this birth control.
