I would not recommend this pill to anyone. I have been on the pill for three months and am going off it once my pack is done. I have never had such terrible breakouts as I do on this drug (and ironically my doctor said it would keep my skin clear).

I am finishing up my first pack of pills and I am calling my doctor first thing Monday morning to have her put me back on my old pill. Since just a few days after starting Generess, I have been broken out worse than I have in quite awhile. I'm 27 years old and my skin is now a mess. Also, I have been very sensitive and emotional. To top it all off, I have started having horrible stomach cramps ... Show Full Comment

I find it much easier to take on time because no matter where Im at I ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I am the happiest most outgoing person! 18 years old. When I went on this pill I was always depressed, crying, or fighting with someone. Nothing would satisfy me. Lost all my sex drive. My anger got out of control. Now that I stopped I have stretch marks on my boobs from growing so fast. WORST PILL EVER. I am scared to even try another type.
