    At first it started by getting my period twice a month and weight gain (inspite of being on Paleo and working out like a maniac). Dr. Insisted that I continue so that my body would adjust. I honestly thought a was going insane. I am not a tough cookie, but not an emotional mess either. For the last 6 months, I have been a hot mess, crying all the time, feel lonely, low energy. I have had no s ... Show Full Comment

    I've taken this birth control for about 3 months already. I didn't notice at first but after my semester from school was over I just looked into the mirror and thought why did I gain all this weight. And back tracked to when it started. It is horrible I feel like I look like a ball now I've gained like 10 pounds since I started. Also my breast are always in pain like I can't even t ... Show Full Comment

    Switched to Manestrin from Lo Loestrin. So far its just as good as the last, I know the drug says to chew it but thus far I have not followed that direction and it has the same effectiveness. I also skip the iron pills at the end so I end up with no period at all. No weight gain, possibly some skin problems but nothing major at all. This pill has been fine for me, Im actually surprised at the ... Show Full Comment

    I had been on Loestrin for about 4 years with a wonderful experience. Switched to Minestrin in October after Loestrin was discontinued. Got me period as normal the first month with some spotting in between. In November, I was spotting and figured that was my period (since my periods are very light on birth control, 1-2 days). Come to find out in December that I was 7 weeks pregnant. Now, I will ad ... Show Full Comment

    After being on Loestrin24Fe for 4 years, my 19 y.o. daughter was switched to Minastrin24 about 5 months ago. She had no problem with Loestrin, but with Minastrin she has missed 2-3 periods off and on (been pregnancy tested) and is now developing forehead acne. She had beautiful skin throughout her teen years. However her weight has stayed the same and there has been no cramping or spotting. She ... Show Full Comment
