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.

Comment:
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

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.

Comment:
I was recently placed on Emoquette after experiencing break-through bleeding with other birth control. I switched from lutera to ortho tri- to vestura. Emoquette is the fourth type of birth control I have been prescribed. I started the pack about a week and a half ago, and have been experiencing pretty intense acne. I'm not normally the time to have skin issues; however, since being placed on ... Show Full Comment
