I started taking Emoquette 3 weeks ago after my postpardum appointment. It has been an absolute nightmare!! I have constant headaches, nausea, no energy, acne when I have NEVER broke out before, and I have an appetite like a teenage boy. Also I have had crazy mood swings and been very depressed. To top that it gave me a horrible yeast infection! I dont have time for all this with a 2 year old and ... Show Full Comment

It's an oral pill so it can be hard to remember to take it sometimes, but I set a silent alarm on my phone that goes off each night to remind me. Overall, my experience has been a good one. I have less painful and predictable periods and my skin is clearer than before. This is my 4th method of BC and is definitely the best so far.

I lost 15 pounds and I'm down to 105. I'm always nauseous and I'm pretty sure since I'm bleeding every single day, w ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been on over 10 different birth control pills; and with the exception of Yasmin it has the least side effects. No weight gain, breakouts, mood swings or fatigue. It sometimes gives me an upset stomach but I take it before I go to sleep to alleviate this. All and all i give it an A +. I was on Orthocept 2 months ago and I was a raving lunatic and getting breakouts like a teenager; I'm 37 ... Show Full Comment
