Comment:
I, like many others, was VERY disappointed when they discontinued Loestrin. The chewable replacement (Minastrin) was horrible. I was left frustrated and never knew about Lomedia until I started my own research because I hated Minastrin so much. I was hessitant due to the lack of reviews, but thought it couldn't get any worse... I have now been on Lomedia for a full month now and couldn't b ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Lomedia 24 fe was my first ever experience with oral contraceptives. I asked for a birth control that would help manage my hormonal acne and heavy period. When I first started taking lomedia I had heavy cramping that was painful and would last almost all day and since I used the "first day" method to begin taking lomedia it increased my blood flow greatly so I was so frightened that thes ...

I feel that my energy levels are elevated also I guess because of the balance in my hormones. The only thing is i had break through spotting on my first pack, but irregular periods was part of the reason for going on birth control in the first place, so that ... Show Full Comment

I have PMDD, and my doctor prescribed this medication to me after I had some negative experiences with BeYaz. I've only been on it a month, and I already hate it. Weight gain, boating (even in my feet - my shoes don't fit!), acne, mood swings, etc. etc. It's awful and I would rather deal with the heavier periods than any of these awful side effects.

Comment:
I read the horrid stories about minestrin and I did not even want to give it a chance! I was originally on Trisprintec and it gave me the worse cramps the entire time. Trisprintec also gave me yeast infections or bladder infections every 2/3 months. I switched to Loestrin and as everyone else said, it was the best birth control ever. I went 2 years without an infection at ALL before they discontin ... Show Full Comment
