I am on my second pack & love it so far. It's easy to take, minty & chewy which is a plus. Cut my periods from 7 days to 4 with just the 1st pack. Took away my really painful cramps, back aches & menstrual migraines. The only thing Im not fond of is a little bit of ache & some weight gain but overall I am very pleased & will continue to take it.

Well, I'm not exactly sure if its working or not. This is my first form of north control I have ever taken so I'm not really sure what to look for. I have been really moody lately and my periods lasted the same as it always is. It's just such a small pill and when I chew it I don't feel like I'm getting enough or taking it right. At least its minty!

I have been taking this pill for about 3 weeks now and I am somewhat pleased. The pros are the lighter periods. However, it has given me acne and extremely bad headaches. I have NEVER had acne and now my face has big red bumps and scars all over it =( Not happy about that. Another thing are the horrible HORRIBLE headaches. From reading the other reviews I am not the only one experiencing this. I ... Show Full Comment

I'm on my second pack of Generess Fe and I'm not sure how I feel about it. This is my first birth control pill so I can't really compare it to others but from what I've experienced, I get extremely bad headaches at times, about an hour after I take the pill, and sometimes bad cramps for a few minutes. This is coming from a girl who never ever gets cramps during her period (I got lu ... Show Full Comment
