    This is my second month into taking this birth control and I must say I like it. I no longer have the terrible cramps that came with my period and I have noticed my complexion is clearing up. There is a bit of water retention, but not much compared to what others have experienced. Also, I’ve noticed my breasts have grown a little since starting this birth control. Which for me is a bit of a good t ... Show Full Comment

    I switched from the Nuvaring to Low Ogestrel 28 ten days ago. I have gained 4lbs in the last 4 days. I am an extremely active individual. I work out at least 5 days a week and I watch what I eat. I am immediately stopping this medication.

    I'm a bit disappointed that I seem to be the only one having severe nausea and throwing up with this medication. I stayed home from work today, day 10 of taking this medication. This is the second time in a year I have attempted to go onto the Low-Ogestrel oral and both times have led to the same effect. I rarely have side effects with medications but now that this is the second time that t ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking this pill for over 2 years now. Of course all bc will have some negative effects but as compared to others I must say this one is amazing. When I first started birth control I switched rapidly due to yeast infections, UTIs and other various issues. After about 3 to 4 different types I found this one. Your appetite will increase, you just have to pay more attention to how much a ... Show Full Comment
