    I am almost finished with my first pack and I am fairly satisfied. I have never taken bc before. In the first week, I felt achy all over. I had headaches accompanied by nausea. I also feel like I was a little more emotional than normal (which is saying something- I've always been moody). My face acne has gotten worse, but my doctor said that everything will get flushed out. I can take a few we ... Show Full Comment

    This birth control is giving me serious headaches and I gained 12 lbs in the three weeks I've been on it even though I only eat organic vegetables, nuts, lean meats, etc., and no sugar, carbs, whole eggs, or anything with high fat content. My diet contains absolutely NOTHING that would cause me to gain weight and this is the most weight I've ever gained, and the quickest. I've always h ... Show Full Comment

    I'm officially DONE with this BC. I was on it for almost a year and I had 3 periods every single month that were heavy and annoying! My doctor didn't believe it was the BCs fault, got an ultrasound and everything was great reproductive wise. She finally switched me to Daysee and all the migraines, cramps, nausea and NON STOP PERIODS, stopped by day 6 of the new pills! Emoquette is the wors ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    This drug definitely has its pros and cons... I originally went on the pill to help treat my acne and when I first started my acne did not improve. As a matter of fact, it got much worse. However, after a little research I found that this was a common side effect of many birth controls because it takes the body a few months to adjust to the changing hormone levels. I am now finishing my third pack ... Show Full Comment

    I don't know what everyone else is complaining about, this pill isn't so bad. I'm an 18y/o non-smoker, and I just finished my first pack of Emoquette, and although the start was a little rocky (I've never taken bc before), I'm doing much better now. In the beginning, I became irritable and tired occasionally (this was bad for the first three or four days) and my depression cam ... Show Full Comment
