Its my first time taking this birth control pill and i have been on it for about 2 weeks already. The only side effects that i have gotten is nausea and being tired. I am currently on my period and i find it very weird to have gotten it early. i wonder if this is normal? So far no weight gain but i noticed that my appetite is increasing and my sex drive has increased as well.

This was the first birth control pill I've taken. Although it's easy to use, I've decided to come off it after using for 7 months due to rapid mood swings and weight gain. The plus side to this pill was that my skin cleared up immensely.

Comment:
I understand that everyone reacts differently to different pills, so please take my review with a grain of salt. I was placed on this pill because I was spotting randomly but not getting my period. It did not stop my spotting, but I did begin getting my period - albeit a very light one lasting 1-2 days - and did prevent pregnancy.
