i switched to this pill from generess fe because of insurance. At first i felt some negative changes in my moods for the first 4 months. I was very irritable and emotional. I noticed that it caused less vaginal dryness than my other pill which was a plus. It has protected me from pregnancy so far (about a year) and also reduced my periods. The first few months I had seemingly horrible cramps aroun ... Show Full Comment

Okay, about 2 yrs ago I began take LoLoestrin as a form of birth control.. For me it was a terrible experience. I would get my period every other week with excruciating cramps & really depressed.

Want to throw in a good review against some of the scary reviews on here, since they terrified me when I first started taking this pill and wanted to read up on it. This was my first experience with a birth control pill, and I'm not pregnant, so, good to go there. For someone who likes routine, I have no problem taking the pill at the same time everyday, which is why I chose the pill over an I ... Show Full Comment

I have been on so many birth control methods (pill, condoms, ring, patch, IUD) and this is by far the worst one I've experienced. I was on lo loestrin before they switched the drug to minastrin fe. I was nauseated and immediately gained 10 pounds. Over the past year and a half I gained another 15 pounds!!! I have horrible mood swings and am extremely emotional for no reason. I used to have 2 l ... Show Full Comment

I've always been a little neurotic but these last few months since I've been on this pill have been intense. I cry sometimes for no reason at all and I feel horribly anxious about trivial things. I can ... Show Full Comment
