    I switched to this bc because of hair loss. I was tested for everything and all tests were normal. I suggested switching pills to my pc to a bc pill with a lower androgen index in hopes it would help. I'm very satisfied with this pill. I have zero side effects with it in fact I no longer have sore brreasts like I did on the previous pill I was on. I also have noticed less hair shed. I am very ... Show Full Comment

    I had huge headaches, lightheadedness, dizziness, nausea, shortness of breath, rapid heart rate, fatigue, and extreme mood swings while on this pill. I took it for five months, thinking it would get better but it didn't. I don't recommend this pill.

    I'm on my 9th pack/month of Emoquette. This is my first pill and first form of BC. I still use condoms with my boyfriend because I really don't want a baby, but my withdrawal bleed comes like clockwork on my 5th iron pill. Nothing too crazy, nothing heavier than I had before BC. My cramps are worse, but tolerable on the second day, along with the heaviest bleeding. No acne, no weight gain. ... Show Full Comment

    Emoquette caused terrible abdominal pain for me. I originally was on Desogen, then Apri, and lastly Emoquette. After taking Emoquette, I experienced horrible abdominal pain and could barely sit without feeling pain. After a few months of taking it in hopes it would get better, I stopped. Emoquette and Desogen are not the same! I do not recommend this pill.
