Switched to Chateal after having a bad experience with Mirena. I received Chateal from Planned Parenthood. I've been on it since May of 2014. First, few months of being on it I didn't have any side effects, but these last few months my emotions have been a roller coaster ride.

I was given this pill as a generic of the birth control I was taking before. Within 2 days I was spotting and then I began my period. It has been about 2 weeks now and I am still having my period, or what seems to be my period. The first week I was on this medication I was beyond moody and emotional. I do not recommend this medication at all!

DO NOT TAKE! I've been on b.c pills for 3 years now and Planned Parenthood switched me to Chateal. HORRIBLE! Ive gained weight, lost sex drive, had mood swings and anxiety and my face has broken out badly. Thankfully I saw everyone else's reviews and realized im not the only one here. Going back to planned parenthood tomorrow and getting my stuff switched ASAP

This is the first time taking this birthcontrol, I was on ocella and when my insurance ended I had to go to planned parenthood and they gave me chateal. All month I have been off, I have been dizzy, moody and my anxiety has been through the rough. I came home last night and my mom noticed a rash on my neck. I literally thought I was going crazy till I read all these reviews and put it all together ... Show Full Comment
