I was taking this BC for 3yrs with no problems or side effects at all. It is a pill that finally works without making me irritable and moody with no weight gain as well. I got off the pill to have another child and now it has been 6wks since my delivery, I am going back on this pill. This is the only pill that has really seemed to work for me. I highly recommend this!

I have been using this pill now for 2 months after switching from Necon. I got off of Necon because I had breakthrough bleeding and my doctor thought this pill would be better. Well it's worse. I'm nauseous, moody, and tired all of the time and now in my second month of taking it I have horrible cramping and breakthrough bleeding. I'm completely unhappy with my BC experience so far and ...

I used to get really bad cramping before using this BC, but now they are just mild cramps that I hardly notice. I don't think they have made me gain weight, but they have caused me to be more irritable than befor ... Show Full Comment
