    I was given 2 sample packets of these pills by my gyno at my last visit. I started taking it this month because my pharmacy messed up my normal prescription with Junel and luckily I had these pills on hand to take until my next refill of Junel in about 2 weeks. I hate this pill. I've already had one period, and am on my second this month alone. WITH spotting in between. Plus I have cramps agai ... Show Full Comment

    My wife has been on this medication since last August, since she started her mental state isn't what it used to be.She has constant mood swings, always depressed, and lacks motivation to do anything. I insisted that she should quit this pill, but she denies that this product is the cause of her looney behavior. I am a patient individual, but this pill is ruining my marriage. I would not recomm ... Show Full Comment

    I started taking Minastrin because loestrin was discontinued. With loestrin I had no problems, no weight gain, nothing. When switching to minastrin I gained an easy 10 lbs, and my cramps have become horrible. Really sad they discontinued loestrin because that birth control was the best I've been on.

    After loving my experience with Loestrin for nearly 5 years, switching to Minastrin was a nightmare. I was always fatigued and had a face covered with acne. I experienced terrible moodiness and depression and gained 15lbs without changing my diet or exercise habits. After I started losing my hair, I went to several doctors and was tested for everything from hypothyroidism to lupus to PCOS to anemi ... Show Full Comment

    I've only been on this birth control for a month. I just wanted to put in a review because when I first received this from my doctor I looked up the reviews and almost had a panic attack about the reviews here. I'm 27 and this is my first time on birth control. I haven't had a terrible experience with this drug, and unless something dramatically changes I'll stay on Minastrin. I re ... Show Full Comment
