Do not take, it is lethal! I used ortho-novum, but then they switched me to this and told me it was the same thing. I don't even think so. I have almost every side effect possible and it's only been 12 days! I strongly advise not taking this medication, there are to many oral contraceptives available to torture yourself with this one.

The headaches started recently but the mood swings, feeling tired all the time was from the beginning. Weight gain almost puffy, swollen, maybe water retention, don't know.

I stopped taking Yasmin & Yaz b/c of migraines & asked to switch back to Ortho Novum 1/35 which I took for years before having 3 kids. Necon substituted & has been awful! Little breakthrough bleeding but still had some headaches & weight gain during the first cycle last month. My main concern is the tightness in my chest & extreme shortness of breath I'm experiencing, plus ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been on this for almost two months. Before taking this pill, I had mood swings only the week before my period. Now, I notice that everyone upsets me almost all he time. I noticed slight chest pain (one day only) similar to what I felt when we had all those fires in Southern California. I had a few head aches, but I did not think they were from the pill. I had two breakthrough periods while ... Show Full Comment
