    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

    This drug made me crazy. I had terrible mood swings, irritability, and I even got to the point I felt suicidal once. If you lack any self confidence or even have a tad bit of depression, do not use. This birth control will make it a million times worse. Granted everyone reacts differently to medication, but this one severely affected my emotions. I didn't realize it until I hit rock bottom and ... Show Full 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.

    Just started my first pill pack of lo-ogestral this month. About to start the placebos. Switched from lo-estrine 24 fe because i kept getting breakthrough bleeding that would last for up to two weeks until my next period. This happened twice in the span of under 6 months AFTER i had been on it for over a year. Did some research and discovered that i could be having breakthrough bleeding because my ...

    I have been on multiple pills for the past 10 years and only just started this one about 9 months ago. It took 6 months for me to get "used" to it but now I know what to expect. My period starts on day 4 of the placebo pills usually and only lasts for 2 - 3 days and is super light. I'm always a bit crampy about 1 week prior but don't generally cramp at any other time. I am mu ... Show Full Comment
