    I have been on many different type of birth control pills since I was 18. Yaz, Necon worked the best for me. After having my son at 25 my doctor switched be from Necon to Viorele for a lower estrogen pill to avoid weight gain and breast growth. It has been the worst month ever on BC. I have had no sex drive, breakouts, very moody & sensitive and my bust went from a small C to a lg. DD in 3 w ... Show Full Comment

    I mainly use birth control to help with my period problems - heavy bleeding, painful cramps & backache, extreme fatigue. I was taking Yaz but after all the negative press freaked me out I wanted to switch to something else. Over the past year while taking this pill my periods aren't as heavy as they used to be but I do have irregular bleeding. cramping is very minimal but my back pain is w ... Show Full Comment

    I, too, was switched by my pharmacist to Viorele from Kariva, which I had taken with no issues for almost 3 years. I began noticing my mood changing almost immediately- I spent a good chunk of time crying about the smallest things (including an incident with my mother-in-law that normally both of us would brush off no problem- instead, I was sobbing uncontrollably over it!) I have always been extr ... Show Full Comment

    I've been taking Viorele for over a year now, and it occasionally gives me very lengthy periods (I'm currently on week #5 of my 4th ever month-long period). I also still have fairly bad cramps. However, I'm only using this medication for birth control and it is very effective at preventing pregnancy. I would recommend Viorele to anyone that doesn't want to get pregnant and doesn ...

    I was on kariva for about 6 years and had no problems with it. Then all of a sudden my pharmacy switched me to viorele and said it was the generic brand of it. Well I took it and it was horrible. I had mood swings, weight gain, and worse of all it completely took away my sex drive. I had my dr call up there to find out why I was given this and the next day I had my kariva back. When I stopped taki ... Show Full Comment
