First week I took it I felt nausea in the morning sometimes which I expected while my body was getting used to it and after a while that went away. Spotted for the first two weeks as well but by the third week it was gone. I felt moody and very anxious on this pill and more depressed than usual. I also broke out on this pill, I usually get one pimple now and then but on this I constantly have a bu ... Show Full Comment

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.

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
