So my doctor thought I needed a high dosage of B ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have always had light-medium periods but slightly irregular. Not too bad but it was always a bit scary waiting for my period each month. The only real reason I went on the pill was for birth control because it is truly the most effective if used correctly. The first month I had spotting which is to be expected. I also had awful back aches the first 2 months during the inactive days. But truly if ... Show Full Comment

Terrible nausea (even with taking it before bed), headache, loss of appetite (nausea), weakness, muscle fatigue, no sex drive.. unbearable. Symptoms gone when I stopped taking it. I took it at the same time everyday too.
