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 don't know what everyone else is complaining about, this pill isn't so bad.

The current pack I am on wears me out with ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was on Alesse for about 8 months without an problems then I slowly started gaining weight and began to experience acne so I was put on Emoquette. Horrible! After only 4 days of taking it I noticed a huge emotional difference. I began to be short tempered, very irritable, isolate myself and began with depression. I stuck it out for 3 weeks but couldn't handle it anymore so I switched to somet ... Show Full Comment
