My pharmacy switched me to this pill 2 and one half months ago. I started having breakthrough bleeding, pain around my ovaries, fairly regular cramping and seriously uncomfortable lower back pain and headaches. As if those fun symptoms were not enough, my sex drive plummeted and I have vaginal dryness during sex despite increased discharge (thick mucus like kind) daily now. I take birth control to ...

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

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

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

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 ...
