    This BC is the worst I have ever taken. I have been taking for 2 months & have had uncomfortable stomach cramps every day. I forgot to take my pill 1 day out of the 2 months & it made me start my period for several days. Definite decrease in my sex drive to the point my boyfriend is frustrated. My boobs are very sensitive as well & have probably grown a cup size (which I do no need!). ... Show Full Comment

    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?

But I'm guessing this was just my body getting used to the hormones. Everything has evened out now and I love this pill! I love that it is chewable and it tastes great! I have had one other side effect, but it's one I'm not co ... Show Full Comment

I have uncomfortable stomach pains and gained a few pounds pretty quickly (I feel like snacking/munching all day). I have had a few unexpected spotting occurances. And I definetly notice a signifigant drop in my ... Show Full Comment
