    I'm 29 and just started taking birth control for the first time in my life. My doctor prescribed Generess to me. I felt like complete crap for the first two days - I had severe nausea in the morning and the rest of the day, and I was exhausted.

    I've just finished my second pack on Generess Fe and have had no real issues other than the acne, tender breasts and cravings. My breasts have been really tender on this birth control (I've never had an issue with that on other pills) and I have noticed I seem a little more emotional!

    Wow, I got this pill from my doctor and was afraid to try it based on the reviews but I have had no problems at all. No weight gain, nausea, or breast tenderness like others talk about. Makes me wonder about previous posters! I will say that my doctor said it could take a few months to get used to the hormone levels but since I switched from Loestrin I haven't had any issues. I changed pill ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on this pill for only 14 days and have gained almost 6 lbs. I am very bloated. Also, my period was too heavy and had large clots. The minty flavor is horrible. I am definitely going to stop using it right now!
