I started Nexplanon implant last valentines day, well a year later I got severe migraines with auras, but my period also never stopped. So my doctor recomended I was on a pill too. After I started it I lost the period and everything felt great. Well she took me off the pill and they all started again. I got my nexplanon out about 2-3 weeks ago and she has had me on Generess FE since due to my lo ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
This is an easy and affordable medication for birth control. The pills are chewable and taste minty.

Comment:
This was the first birth control I've ever tried, and went through three months of it before my insurance wouldn't pay for it. At first all was well, it tastes minty so that was cool and it never made me nauseous or anything but my mood swings were ridiculous after the first month and a half. I hadn't really noticed I was being so emotional, I didn't think anything of it until my b ... Show Full Comment
