    I started Minastrin after LoEstrin was discontinued and was told it was the exact same formula. I loved LoEstrin and was really sad that I couldn't take it any more. I thought this was unrelated but after reading the reviews I realize it my not have been--I started getting severely bloated. I go from having a completely flat stomach to looking 7 months pregnant since I started this pill. I ... Show Full Comment

I have had terrible mood swings, fati ... Show Full Comment
