This is my first pack of Generess Fe. I love the minty pills. I have been getting some headaches and little acne on my back and face but I think my body needs to just get used to it. I have had some bloating and I am not sure about that. If it is normal or not?

This is the first birth control pill I have taken since having my children. The first two week I was on it, I did break out a bit and was incredibly hungry.

I have been on it now for 3 weeks. I too have had the spotting. No head aches or cramping. Just seems like such a small pill to do such a Big job. The chewable part is throwing me for a loop. Kind of like a Flintstones Vitamin. Like the minty taste. Hve notices acne on my back and shoulders. Not happy about that!

Comment:
This is my first experience with birth control of any kind. It would appear to be effective (as I am not yet pregnant) but I am not entirely sure it is worth the side effects I am experiencing. I had a clockwork period (of 4 days) prior to taking the pill, but after my first pill pack I experienced a sparatic period lasting almost 2 weeks. I have experience almost constant (but mild) cramping s ... Show Full Comment
