I was switched to Vestura in December 2013 or so. I have experienced cramping, spotting, mood swings, severe depression and weight gain. I have always been around 145 to 150lbs range now I am 170lbs! being only 5' 4' tall this has been horrific. Not sure if it is the weight gain or this drug but my sex drive is gone. Thought I was going crazy and thought my body was going through chan ... Show Full Comment

I have been on this birthcontrol for a little over a month. When I first started the pill after a few days I noticed mood swings, all I wanted to do was cry. I would flip from mad to sad in the blink of an eye. I constantly wanted to eat & eat. In the 3rd week of the 1st month I started spotting, continued to spot until I started the 1st pill of the 2nd month & that exact day I started a h ... Show Full Comment

I'm 33 with a 6 year old daughter...Walgreens switched me from Gianvi to Vestura in late dec 2013. I gained about 8 lbs within 2 months. I thought it was because my metabolism was slowing down (I turned 33 in March 2014) so I went to a weight loss clinic. I was about 130 (5'3") prior to the switch of brands. By May 2014 I was 147 lbs. I've been on prescription appetite suppressant ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Over the course of 5 years, I've tried a range of different birth control pills including Ortho Tri-Cyclen & Loestrin. The former caused me to gain over 10lbs in water weight. The latter I took only briefly due to the intense emotional havoc it wreaked on my psyche 2 summers ago. I've taken Gianvi since (WONDERFUL!!!!), but was switched to Vestura when Walgreens lost their contract wit ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Like others I was given Vestura in place of my usual pill, Gianvi, which I had been doing well on. The only good thing about Vestura is the fact that is prevents pregnancy...otherwise it's been a nightmare. Light bleeding every single day, depression, feeling tired every day, weight gain and bloating--and I am very active and healthy and otherwise living a wonderful life. Don't take it if ...
