I have been on this for a little more than a month. I did gain weight (I feel all in the first week ~5lbs), mostly in my butt and chest, and had increased appetite. I spotted for the full month from my first period on it to my next period. But now that I am done with my period, no spotting. I believe no acne problems. Now that I am past the spotting, I am happy ( just need to lose this extra weigh ... Show Full Comment

Experienced several side effects - significant weight gain (I eat healthy and work out 6 days/week), acne (cleared up for a while, then got much worse), my leg hair started growing at 2 or 3 times the rate it previously grew (weird), and worst of all, I have NO sexual desire WHATSOEVER.

I was on the pill Loestrin FE for 5 years when I started spotting irregularly. My doc switched me to the Generess 18 months ago and so far I love it! I only get a period once every 3 months that only lasts a couple days at most. The only adverse effect is breast tenderness occasionally. Which I would have to deal with every month anyway if I were not on the pill.

I love absolutely everything about this birth control except it makes me extremely angry. It has turned me into a monster! I'm so angry all the time, and I completely flip out over small stuff, its terrible! It would be the perfect birth control if it didn't do that to me :(
