I will be switching to a differen ... Show Full Comment

My doctor has since put me back on Minastrin and I feel normal again.

I next to no energy, emotional outbursts,and terrible cramping. I must say this medication has made a huge difference with my energy and emotions. My periods last about 4 days (compared to 7 previously) and the cramping has dec ... Show Full Comment

This has been awful!!! I was previously on Kariva and all of a sudden was put on this pill without anyone notifying me about the switch. I had an AWFUL migraine a month into starting Viorele, which I've never had, then missed a period and starting having awful abdominal pain. I have seen my Dr. and have had an ultrasound done and everything because of my pain and I am convinced it is this pill ... Show Full Comment
