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

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.

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
