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.

Comment:
I have been on a couple different BC pills in my life (minipill, loestrin and its generic, and others). This pill has given me by far the LIGHTEST period. It lasts two days or less and its very light. BUT this pill has given me the craziest mood swings- Im emotional, cranky, and irritable. My libido is NONE. I have NO desire for sex and cant really enjoy it when I do have sex. I only have one p ... Show Full Comment
