    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

    I have only been taking this pill for a week but so far I have no complaints. I have taken other pills which I vomited right back up as soon as they were taken. I have also been on the depo provera shot, which wasn't bad but did make me gain a little weight. So far the only side effects to generess is I am tired all the time. I do have some cramping but not worse than before I started it. I re ... Show Full Comment

This began a week and a half after taking Generess Fe and I am afraid there may be a blood clot ... Show Full 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
