    I was just wondering if anyone has experienced nausea or diarrhea on this medication. I have vomited about 6 times since the switch to this new birth control and I am not sure if it is the birth control or something else. I am not pregnant and I used to take LoLoestranFe and I just switch for a higher dose.

    I am having a terrible time switching from LoEstrin to this drug. My PMS symptoms are much worse to the point where I took 1.5 days off from work because I was ill. I have breakthrough bleeding, depression and a stomach pain. It is a terrible drug, but there are no alternatives for something with a lose does of estrogen. Anyone have ideas?

    I'm currently taking this but so far have had terrible side affects. The pill is chewable and takes good but that's the only plus. I have mood swings where I'm rude and feel depressed and want to cry for no reason. I have very bad stomach pain and have abnormal bleeding from constipation. I also feel incredibly weak and sometimes disoriented. My sister takes loloestrin and has no side ... Show Full Comment

Typically I'll have some food cravings and be tired for a couple of days about a week before my period, but I often feel this way. This birth control makes me feel li ... Show Full Comment
