    I was switched to Vestura several months ago when my previous birth control got to be too expensive. (I'm uninsured) It was okay for a while as I recall, but my periods have been getting worse and worse these past few months. I went from having bad back pain during my period prior to taking Vestura to now severe back pain, general cramping as well as horrible cramping and sharp pain my my pelv ... Show Full Comment

    For one, my boyfriend, family and friends have officially considered me "bad-shit crazy". This is what bothers me the most about this BC. I snap out of nowhere, I break down in tears for now apparent reason and I can't control any of my emotions... I act crazy and I know I act crazy but there's nothing I can do about it. I don't recognize myself anymore. I have no drive or mo ... Show Full Comment

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
