Mainly I became angry and viol ... Show Full Comment

After the 1st month of taking these pills, I noticed I stopped losing weight, as I was exercising everyday.I've noticed that all birth control do this with me, so its ok. The only other thing is that with the inactive pills, my cramping is horrible. I just have a heavy yucky feeling all week until I start a new pack. Other than that I haven't noticed any mood swings or headaches.
