First of all BIRTH CONTROL DOES NOT MAKE YOU GAIN WEIGHT!!! It just doesn't. I know it's easy to say that you've been eating the same as normal but I promise you that you haven't been if you are gaining a crazy amount of weight in a short period of time...there is something else going on. Generally I hate bc. It makes me depressed and anxious and nauseous and angry and all the ... Show Full Comment

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

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

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
