Before I switched to Lomedia I was taking Minastrin 24 fe I switched back to that brand today. I've been using Lomedia for 4 months now and the side effects are horrible. It makes me gas so I constantly feel like I have to burp, food I eat all the time usually has been making me throw up, anything I eat has a bad after taste now, and my period is inconsistent and I randomly cramp throughout th ...

Of course, just like almost every other review I've read I was extremely upset when I found out they discontinued Lostrin. I've been on 15-20 kinds of bc & that was the only one that's worked for me, until Lomedia. While I did gain a few pounds the first few months on it, that's been the only negative side effect. Cramps are minimal if I have any, my period is only 3-4 days &am ... Show Full Comment

I was hopeful that this would be my answer after Loestrin 24 FE was discontinued. I was on that pill for years with zero problems. I'm 34 and I've tried a number of pills in the past 14 years, and this is one of the worst experiences I've had (Yaz was the worst). Crazy mood swings (which has never happened to me on BC), really swollen and painful breasts, AWFUL bloating and weight gain ... Show Full Comment

I switched from Sprintec/Previfem to this due to emotional issues from being on a 7 day placebo. I have had no issues. I think so many birth control side effects are psychosomatic, so if you don't think about it, it doesn't occur. I work out regularly, and drink about a gallon of water a day. I have seen no change from switching and love having only 4 days of placebo pills.

Comment:
I took this for birth control and to keep acne in check during menstruation. I rarely get acne now, and never before my period! Although it did make me gain 10 pound in about 2 weeks that are very difficult to get off (I work out every day, and the pounds stay, but muscle weight makes up some of the 10 pounds now). Overall, it's effective and only makes you gain weight at the beginning.
