I love this pill! Was on Loestrin for years and had a great deal of breast tenderness. Not on this pill. Been on this for 4 mths and just had a period that lasted only a couple of days. The only side affect I experienced the first month was a very slight headache the first couple of weeks . Not even severe enough to take a Tylenol. I would recommend it to anyone!

I forgot to take my pill 1 day out of the 2 months & it made me start my period for several days. Definite decrease in my sex drive to the point my boyfriend is frustrated. My boobs are very sensitive as well & have probably grown a cup size (which I do no need!). ... Show Full Comment

This is my first pack of Generess Fe. I love the minty pills. I have been getting some headaches and little acne on my back and face but I think my body needs to just get used to it. I have had some bloating and I am not sure about that. If it is normal or not?

This is the first birth control pill I have taken since having my children. The first two week I was on it, I did break out a bit and was incredibly hungry. But I'm guessing this was just my body getting used to the hormones. Everything has evened out now and I love this pill! I love that it is chewable and it tastes great! I have had one other side effect, but it's one I'm not co ... Show Full Comment
