    I took Viorele for about 3 months. Did not notice too many changes. It did clear up my facial acne significantly, but I experienced a few painful acne spots appearing only my back-which I never had a problem with. I did not experience cramping during my period, but noticed pressure around my ovaries during the month. I did in fact loose weight with this one. I regularly has nausea the first 3-4 ho ...

    I have been taking this medication for about 8 months now with the hope of balancing out my SEVERE PMS. Mood swings don't really do whatever I was experiencing justice. 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

    Horrible medication! I was taking Kariva and my pharmacy changed it to Viorele without letting me know. I have had the WORST cystic acne ever since I started taking it 3-6 months ago. I didn't make the connection until recently. I had great skin before; never a problem. Now it is miserable. I am hoping I can get back on Kariva.

    I was on Kariva for a year and had no problems. Randomly my pharmacy switched me to Viorele (the generic version) and I didn't think anything of it. I've spent the last 8 months in hell. I'm so emotional (to the point where my boyfriend joked about putting our dog down because she was barking, and I started bawling uncontrollably) I had severe vaginal dryness, my boyfriend and I rarely ...
