    Chewable, easy to take pill- switched to this from Mirena. On Generess I gained weight (8 lbs in 2 weeks), my breasts increased by a cup size and were painful and sore.

    I am almost done with my first pack. I was SO afraid when I started taking it because of the reviews I read on here. But, I havent had any problems accept my breasts feeling a little swollen and fuller (I am already full chested) Its really easy to take I sometimes wonder if its really working since I havent had any side effects.

    I've been taking this since March of 2012 it is now July 2012. The first month I had no issues, then during the second and third month I had 3 yeast infections about 2 weeks apart each time. Now I'm having spotting and blobby/sticky clear and sometimes brownish discharge. I took a pregnancy test and it came back negative. So, it's got to be the pill. I haven't had much acne, I' ...

    I am kind of mixed on my feelings. I have been on this for a week and I am hating it. I have headaches all day long and they don't go away with advil. I wake up feeling sick to my stomach. I literallly want to eat everything in sight. I honestly crave food all day long. My breasts are starting to get bigger as well.
