I had previously been taking Beyaz which I absolutely loved and never had a single negative thing to say about it. My Doctor wanted to switch me to Generess. I was worried to switch because I loved Beyaz and also after reading Generess reviews I was scared of side effects. But I've been taking it for 3 weeks now and I haven't noticed any side effects.

Asked for an IUD, instead was given Generess Fe. Terrible mood swings, weight gain, nausea, and headaches. Felt like a monster 24/7 after very first dose, Stopped taking after the third day. Remind me again why is this allowed for human consumption?

Comment:
I have almost been on these pills for a month and some far no major side effects. I have had mood swings but I think that will be with any BC. I haven't got to my period pills yet which I hope I do get a regular period because that causes me to gain weight. So I guess I will see in a week if I will continue my use on this pill.
