I took this drug for one month only because my pharmacy discontinued Kariva. The side effects are awful and include intermittent headaches,dryness, and just an overall feeling of sickness. I know that users are advised to take birth control for three months to allow the body time to adjust; however, I have no desire to continue this drug. I would NOT recommend this drug.

I was originally taking mircette. Then pharmacy switched to Kariva, which was effective, but caused vaginal dryness. Viorele has caused dryness and weight gain.
