I am not sure of the effectiveness of this drug in concert with pregnancy, however I have been using it for 11 days and I have become very moody, my face filled up with acne, and I wanted to eat more than I should.

I haven't had many problems with this drug and my periods only last 4 days or so which is nice, but I have also had weird discharge like the previous reviewer.

Comment:
I personally had terrible side effects using this product more so than a different brand I was on. My mood swings were terrible and interfering with my daily activities, making me cry over small things at work. Sex became painful and I had odorous white discharge that went away when I discontinued use.
