I hate to rate a birth control after only after a little over two weeks of taking it but I thought it might help someone else. I had to stop taking it because of SEVERE ACNE. I had acne in my teens and twenties and had to take Accutane twice. Since then I have not had very much acne at all.

This medicine has served as a great birth control/contraceptive but has been absolutely terrible otherwise.

I have experienced a lot of bloating and stomach pain with this medication. I've experienced nausea and diarrhea, as well as sore breasts.
