    I've been taking birth control for several years now. I've never taken anything this bad. It's chewable and disgusting tasting. On top of that it made me absolutely crazy. My breasts are extremely tender and barely fit in my bras that I've had for years after only about a month and a half on this pill. Not to mention I have extremely heavy flow on this pill. Went through an entire ... Show Full Comment

    After reading all the reviews I was nervous to try this pill but I decided to give it a try anyway. I just finished my first pack. I haven't experience any of the symptoms the other people have described in terms of crying all the time or moodswings. I've gotten one pimple on my cheek and one on my chin but nothing to freak out about. They went away and everything is fine. I've noticed ... Show Full Comment

    I've only been taking Generess for about 2 weeks and I can't take it anymore! I'm bleeding, my boobs hurts, I'm always dizzy, irritable, anxious/paranoid/angry, and just flat-out MISERABLE! My boyfriend doesn't even want to be around me anymore because the only thing that makes me feel better is crying. I hate this drug and now I'm scared to even try another form of birth c ...

    I have been using this bc for about a month. No mood swings like I had with nuvaring. However, I have experienced severe breast tenderness. Bras this I longer fitting. For me this is a really annoying side effect.

    This bc is by far the worst I've ever taken. I only tried it bc my doctor had free samples. In just 4 days I went from clear skin to painful acne on my chin, above my lip and cheeks. I also felt nauseas all day on my fourth day, and I'm now crying at almost everything. I already threw the pack in the trash, I just hope my skin clears up and I feel better soon. I don't recommend this me ... Show Full Comment
