I was on loestrin FE 24 for 3 years and loved it, no side effects (except for being moody the first month). Now after being on Minastrin 24 I can honestly say nothing has changed. It's like I'm taking the exact same pill. The only reason I didn't give ease of use 5 stars was because I hate the fact that I have to chew it and drink water with it but it's fine. I was skeptical to ... Show Full Comment

Was on Loestrin 24 for 4 years no problems at all! (ok well the first couple months I was moody but that's it) Loved that pill.

I am on my 4th pack now and have had breakthrough bleeding for well over two weeks now. I can ... Show Full Comment
