I am currently on this bc and it has made me super depressed from it. It is affecting my daily life routine and relationships with the depressed mood i get from it. The only good thing about it is that it tastes fine. I will definitely be switching because these mood things are not worth it.

Love, love, love! I have a very light period, that is 2-3 days. I had no side effects at all and it only costs $25 with the savings card! I was even able to print a new card from the Internet when I lost mine. Why pay a high copay when you can get an awesome pill for a great price?

After 2 months I threw these expensive pills in the garbage- Now I've dropped 6 pounds in 2 weeks, my breasts no longer hurt, and the headaches are slowly going a ... Show Full Comment
