    Horrible side effects... constant feeling of bloating, breast pain, horrible cramps, rapid weight gain, tiredness, and dizzyness. First kind I've tried since giving birth... I'm going to switch back to Nuvaring and hope for better results!

    Spotting, breast enlargement, and fatigue with some headaches for me. Those complaining about weight gain should read the pamplet, as quoted "decrease sexual desire, weight gain" is a very rare and low case. With any birth control pill there is side effects, I know you have to stick it out a few months. So before putting negative things realize any medication gives you that, and from rea ...

    I have been taking this pill for three months. While I have not gotten pregnant, I have experienced: amenorrhea, moods swings, severe fatigue. Three months without a period is ridiculous. I will be switching to another birth control after I am finished with this pack because my doctor recommended it.

I am active and eat healthy and I have gained 7 lbs since I began using this pill. When I n ... Show Full Comment
