I have been on this pill for only 14 days and have gained almost 6 lbs. I am very bloated. Also, my period was too heavy and had large clots. The minty flavor is horrible. I am definitely going to stop using it right now!

I've been on my period for 17 days. Doc said it would take my body up to three months to get used to hormones but not worth it. Will be switching next appt (2 days away yay). Just to add, mini pill did the same thing for me as well. Husband says I've been pretty distant for a while but after 17 days, who wouldn't.

I feel horrible on this pill. I am only on the 2nd week. No mood swings but I am more irritable. Some bloating, some spotting, brief headaches and minor cramps. Those things are not a big deal. What makes me miserable is the nausea. I know it is supposed to get better with time, but this is awful.
