    By far the best birth control I've been on. I've been on pills that made me have severe mood swings and nausea, and Minastrin makes me feel completely normal and like my old self. I've been on it for a little over a year, and my periods are significantly shorter with little to no PMS symptoms.

    I'm adding on to a review from a few months ago. I've now been on this medicine for 3 months. I didn't have any real problems with the pill. I don't think I had enough time to regulate my periods before I had to stop taking the pill. I'm a healthy 27 year old, 125lbs, eat healthy and exercise. I've never taken a smoke in my like and don't drink regular. I was advised to ... Show Full Comment

    I started this BC only 2 months ago and i have noticed a severe change to my mood. I have been crying a lot more, feeling more depressed and can't get out of it. I have not had the weight gain but I've had the spotting between periods. Heavy enough to have to wear a tampon. I was on Loestrin several years ago and i had NO problems with that. My mood swings are so bad, i thought i was g ... Show Full Comment

    Was on this pill for the last year and few odd months. Everything seemed fine up until a few months ago, when breakthrough bleeding started to occur. Cut to now, I have heaving bleeding again when it happened for 7 days straight 2 weeks ago, both mid pack. Doctor has no idea why the pill would start behaving like this, no help on this subject matter. Been told to grin and bear it while I pay 25$ a ... Show Full Comment
