I switched to Minastrin from Loestrin when it was discontinued. I loved Loestrin, but since I have been on Minastrin I have gained over 10 pounds in 8 monthes, have experienced depression, headaches, nosebleeds, painful sex from reduced lubrication and no period. I am switching my pill now, so hopefully I will find another good one like Loestrin.

I started thinking that it would be ok and I wouldn't have to face many issues concerning my skin or my emotional health. However since starting Minastrin, my skin has been a total wreck.

My e ... Show Full Comment
