I've been taking it for about a month because I was having trouble with the high estrogen content in another birth control. So far so good. My only concern is that I haven't had my period yet and I just finished the pack. If it doesn't start up soon, I'm going to be concerned. Other than that, I love that it's chewable! So much easier to use and I think it has a minty flavor. I ... Show Full Comment

Eight weeks postpartum my pharmacy enlightened me that Loestrin had been discontinued and that Minastrin was exactly the same. I stopped taking it after only 13 days. I became severely depressed, no sex drive, tearful, anxious, tired, bloated like crazy! T ... Show Full Comment

I hope it con ... Show Full Comment

Like everyone else, I was switched to this chewable alternative to Loestrin FE because my pharmicist said my pill was discontinued but this was EXACTLY the same just chewable. I have been taking it for almost 3 months now. My period was out of wack almost immediately, I completely missed it for a month, I started breaking out again which was finally under control after jumping from multiples pills ...
