Comment:
I started this BCP a month ago, and I have never used any kind of birth control prior to this. So far, I've found it a pretty easy transition. My skin has cleared a bit since taking the pill, and I haven't noticed any weight gain (if anything I have a reduced appetite). The first week I started, my period was extremely prolonged, but my second period has been extremely light so far. I am s ... Show Full Comment

I was on this for a few months about a year ago and had a terrible experience. I gained weight despite healthy diet and exercise, broke out in acne worse than I had in years and was moody and upset nearly all the time. I don't know if that was a result of the birth control itself or just my body's reaction to hormones, but I certainly wouldn't recommend it to anybody.

Comment:
Before taking Levora, I used to experience VERY painful periods, mainly sharp pains in my abdomen. My boyfriend would tell me I would clutch my stomach at night and wake up crying because of the pain.

Comment:
Overall Levora does its job. I have been on it for 4 months and it's been effective in preventing pregnancy even when I have taken it a couple of hours late because I have forgotten. My partner and I think it has decreased my libido--and I have a higher libido on the reminder pill week. I have gained 10 pounds while on this pill but I am not certain there's direct causation. I also ex ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
To be clear, I take this pill every day to avoid pregnancy and not to alleviate period symptoms, acne or other benefits of the pill. I'm in a monogamous relationship and do not use a backup method of birth control, but we've never even had a scare. That's my main concern with any birth control pill. However, I really appreciate the much lighter menstrual flow (none at all if I skip the ... Show Full Comment
