I received a supply of this pill from Planned Parenthood this past November and began taking it after my next period. I had no problems at all the first time around, but ended up traveling to Alaska and staying there for a few months, leaving my supply of birth control pills behind. Anyway, I was off it for a few months but was looking forward to going back on it because I don't like condoms ... Show Full Comment

I am pleased that this drug is easy to use and has been effective for me however my moods are absolutely wild. I have major highs and major lows. I am constantly irritated at everyone for no reason at all and I frequently cry. I am thinking about switching to something that won't effect my moods so much as I feel I am becoming a pain to be around.

I've been on this for a week and a half and I hate everything about it. I can't stop crying, I'm severely irritable, my acne is worse than it has ever been. I switched from Tri-Previfem because my periods were irregular, but I'd rather deal with that than this. I'm switching ASAP.
