    I switched to this after having problems with Ortho Tri-Cyclen and Avaine (Ortho-Tri Cyclen didn't regulate my periods well & I had tons of breakthrough bleeding and an ectopic pregnancy. Aviane worked well at regulating my period, but was too androgenic and resulted in bloating/weight gain and acne.) With Viorele, my periods are regular and I don't have any side effects. So far I' ... Show Full Comment

    Taking this pill was one of the worse things that's happened to me. I was given this drug by my CVS pharmacist who informed me that Kariva (which I've been on for years and have never had any problems) was discontinued. She never spoke to my doctor about this switch in prescriptions and because I needed birth control, I took it. Immediately I started gaining weight. No matter what I di ... Show Full Comment

    This is the first time I have felt compelled to write a review for a drug. I began using Viorele just a little over a week ago, and the side effects I am experiencing are so terrible and intense, I will not continue to use this birth control. I have experienced nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, breast tenderness, increased appetite, vaginal dryness, and fatigue. This has been the week from hell. I d ... Show Full Comment

    BEWARE OF VIORELE!!! I have been on many types of birth control (Azzurette, Ortho Tri-cyclin, etc.) for over a decade and this by far has had the worst side effects on my body. I am alarmed and horrified this drug is still being distributed despite over 100 negative reviews. The symptoms I've experienced in the last 3 weeks were restless joints, tingling, swelling, numbness, headaches, heart ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    When I first started birth control this was the pill that my doctor put me on. For the last two months it has literally ruined my life emotionally. I have cried everyday since I started the pill, for the stupidest reasons. My mood swings are out of control, I am constantly irritable, and I have been exhibiting depression like symptoms. It put a huge strain on the brand new relationship I was just ... Show Full Comment
