Comment:
Was on Ortho Evera for about four years before my insurance made me switch. Immediately noticed a negotiable difference! Felt sick, tired, and pale for months. I never gained weight on Ortho, but can't seem to shake the weight from Xulane. I'm a healthy, active person, so this is horrible. Recently, I went on antibiotics and, come my period week, have been soaking through pads and am very ... Show Full Comment
