    The first month I was more emotional than normal, and had slight head aches. I'm now onto my 3rd month in and everything is back to normal. No side effects, no weight loss, no crazy periods (super light!) and my family & fiancé say there's no difference :)

    Asked for an IUD, instead was given Generess Fe. Terrible mood swings, weight gain, nausea, and headaches. Felt like a monster 24/7 after very first dose, Stopped taking after the third day. Remind me again why is this allowed for human consumption?

    I have almost been on these pills for a month and some far no major side effects. I have had mood swings but I think that will be with any BC. I haven't got to my period pills yet which I hope I do get a regular period because that causes me to gain weight. So I guess I will see in a week if I will continue my use on this pill.

    I am 33 and been on the pill since 17. Switched last month from Loesterin because my periods been irregular lately. I have more acne than I had as a teenager, headaches, water retention. And cry easily. Going back to my old pill at the end of this pack.
