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.

When I stopped taki ... Show Full Comment

After 5 years on Yaz I switched to Viorele because of all of the hype. The worst 3 months of my life. Headaches, nonexistent sex drive and miserable mood swings. I've never been one to blame these issues on my birth control but it was so obvious. It almost ruined my relationship. I have been on a new pill for a week now and already feel like a new person. Do not take this pill.
