    I have taken this pill for about 8 years. No problems until this last year...weight gain (prob my fault though?), major bleeding between periods, clotting, mood swings, and the return of acne.

    I was on the generic version of Ortho for a while. I was getting two periods a month on that pill so my doctor switched me to the regular version. I have had the WORST mood swings ever and I don't know how my fiance has put up with me. I just called to get changed back to the generic.
