    Being newly married AND diagnosed with PCOS (poly-cystic ovarian syndrome), my doctor prescribed Mircette. The pharmacy suggested the generic version, Viorele. I'd never had bad experiences with generic meds before, I went along with it. The experience was not much different than other oral contraceptives I'd used in the past, though I'd never used any for more than a month before. My ... Show Full Comment

    If you are reading all these other reviews do not panic like I did. I am 25 years old and I am just over my first month taking this pill and I'm having very positive results. I've been on the pill for over 10 years and have tried a few different ones. Most recently, I had been taking Loestrin 24FE, until it was replaced by a different pill that my insurance wouldn't cover. My Dr. sw ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    As a first time birth control user in her 20s these reviews really intimidated me when I stumbled upon them while trying to research which birth control my doctor prescribed (which led my CVS pharmacy to give me the generic Viorele). Since reading everyone else’s comments I have purposely waited to share my experience until after I have been on Viorele for more than 3 months (to know that my body ... Show Full Comment

    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 ...
