    I have tried all kinds of bc, but this one works the best for me. I do have the nasty constant hunger. But it does go away after a few months. After roughly 15 years of taking it off and on I love it. I gave it a 4 because I got pregnant with my 3 child on it but that may have been my fault too!

    I started taking this pill due to a irregular period. I was on the pill for about 6 months with no problems whats so ever. Than around the 7th month i started feeling sick all of the time.

But it happens to the best of us. Now i ... Show Full Comment

    The only reason I put a one for satisfaction is because 0 wasn't an option. I have been on zovia now for almost 4 years, and at first it was okay.

    I started taking birth control to control my painful periods - Zovia is my second attempt at relief and I AM RELIEVED! My periods have switched from very painful bleeding for 4-5 days, to painless bleeding for 2 days. I initially gained a few pounds, but that all came off after I increased my water intake. Unlike the BC I took before Zovia, I actually have a healthy sex drive with this pill. I ... Show Full Comment
