Mono-Linyah messed with my body so much in the short month I was on it! I was moody, nauseous, had acne like a 13 year old & bled for over two weeks upon first starting it. I would NOT recommend this to anyone!

HORRIBLE!!!! Worse Birth Control yet! Have been on for three months and am extremely nauseous and moody. Hopefully the next one will be better for me, because this one seriously messed with my body/hormones. Wouldn't recommend to my worst enemy.

I have been taking this medication for two and a half months now and I experience serious nausea everyday. Other side effects I have had are serious breakouts and severe mood swings. This is not worth it for me.

I've only been on this medication a month. I haven't started my period yet but when I first started it I used it to skip my period due to vacation and I never had any break through bleeding at all. I haven't had any mood swings, or decrease in sex drive.. if any, its gotten better. I love this birth control so far. Also my acne has been clearing up a lot. :)
