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 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.

Comment:
I used LoOvral and Low Ogestrel for a combined 17 years. The latter being used for about 10 years. The only reason I stopped was because my prescription was hard to get due to the recall on packaging. I didn't want to try anything else. Unfortunately, now I have cystic acne and my skin is horrible. This had mild side effects on me. Nothing major, It was as good as it gets.
