    I am so happy I decided to look at these reviews, because I thought I was going crazy! I hate this pill! I've been on it for 2 months and I have experienced most of the symptoms that everyone is talking about here. My mood swings are so horrible that even my husband said, "I don't think I like this new pill." After I eat anything, I bloat so much it hurts! I'm a runner s ... Show Full Comment

    After trying everything from the ring to the IUD and several different pils. My doctor placed me on Generess. I LOVE it. I have NOT gained any weight or had bad reaction to this pill. I love that it is chewable and I gladly have not become pregnant. I only have a few more years I can be on birth control so hopefully this will be the last one I take. My cramps have eased up but, my period is still ... Show Full Comment

    First couple of months I gained a few pounds and would feel nauseated when I ate, but after sticking too it it made my acne go away, the nausea went away and not I love it. Chewable and mint flavored which is a plus. Period is only 4 days and not too heavy which is important since I used to have heavy 8 day periods. Cramps during periods are almost nonexistent. Period comes at same time now. Also ... Show Full Comment

    Spotting all month, lost appetite. Lost weight as a result of poor appetite. My breasts grew a cup size and are tender all month. I haven't had a full period yet, just month long spotting. I have 2 acne cysts. I can't say for sure it is the birth control as I forgot to take my antibiotic (for acne cysts) a few times. I am changing to Nordette for spotting and breast tenderness. Dr also sai ... Show Full Comment
