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.

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!

I've been on my period for 17 days. Doc said it would take my body up to three months to get used to hormones but not worth it. Will be switching next appt (2 days away yay). Just to add, mini pill did the same thing for me as well. Husband says I've been pretty distant for a while but after 17 days, who wouldn't.

I am currently on this bc and it has made me super depressed from it. It is affecting my daily life routine and relationships with the depressed mood i get from it. The only good thing about it is that it tastes fine. I will definitely be switching because these mood things are not worth it.
