I'm 29 and just started taking birth control for the first time in my life. My doctor prescribed Generess to me.

The amount of pain and bleeding I experienced for the first four months was unbearable, the cramps were excruciating. Bleeding was heavy and would come and go often an unexpectedly.

Comment:
Wow, I got this pill from my doctor and was afraid to try it based on the reviews but I have had no problems at all. No weight gain, nausea, or breast tenderness like others talk about. Makes me wonder about previous posters! I will say that my doctor said it could take a few months to get used to the hormone levels but since I switched from Loestrin I haven't had any issues. I changed pill ... Show Full Comment
