This is the first pill I've been on after my daugther was born. I was on numerous pills prior to getting pregnant and always had trouble with spotting mid-cycle. I have none of that with this pill but I haven't had a period in the five months I've been on it at all. My OBGYN said this was ok, but now I am starting to notice that some of my severe anxiety and mood swings come at the sam ... Show Full Comment

Generess reviews seem to be brutal. I am here to give my opinion which is: being on Generess for about a month, I have noticed visible improvements in my skin and no noticeable weight gain. I was prescribed Generess due to mood swings and really haven't seen too much improvement with that, but I also think there are other problems causing my mood swings. Once again I cannot say that this produ ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I would not recommend this pill to anyone. I have been on the pill for three months and am going off it once my pack is done. I have never had such terrible breakouts as I do on this drug (and ironically my doctor said it would keep my skin clear). I also have had terrible headaches and cramps, which I haven't experienced since I was 18. Effective for birth control use but terrible side effec ... Show Full Comment
