Unlike other reviews, my acne cleared with this pill. Never had better skin results. However, my sex drive is on the floor and I stay nauseas all the time.

Comment:
I have been using this as a replacement from Loestrin 24 fe. I cramp and bleed every time after I take the pill. I'm moody all the time, tired and sluggish (and I'm very in shape-work out 4/5 times a week) I'm breaking out. I hate this pill do bad. Please any recommendations???
