    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

    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

    Like other women's experiences of this drug, I was on Kariva for nearly ten years with no problems, it was fantastic. I took Kariva for birth control and for help with periods. Two weeks ago, I showed up at CVS for my refill, and the pharmacist looked me in my eye and told me Kariva had been discontinued. I was furious, as no one consulted me or my doctor (I called my doctor's office and t ... Show Full Comment

    I know everybody is different but this birth control was absolutely terrible for me. My periods were WORSE; heavier and more painful. Also, I've been the same size for over three years. My weight has never budged over a pound or two and I've gained ten very noticeable pounds. It made me tired literally 24/7, emotional, and most importantly I got extreme vaginal dryness. I've never had ... Show Full Comment

    CVS switched me from Kariva to Viorele a year ago. I have headaches for a year or so every month when I have period. I didn't even think it could be related to the change. I exercise regularly and weight was never an issue. But lately, it seems hard to control the weight gain. I thought it is because I am 40 and above. At 44, acnes still popped out around my chin. I finally told my doctor abou ... Show Full Comment
