    It's been about 8 years since I was on bc pills. At that time I was on Lo Overal and had no problems whatsoever. So the generic version seemed like a perfect choice. Not so much. I have been incredibly emotional, terribly fatigued, hungry all the time and nauseous. I constantly have a feeling of sadness and hopelessness and have been anything but productive at work. It's no wonder it ... Show Full Comment

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 have been on so many birth controls and none seem to work for me. Most of them my body rejected them or severe weight gain and bloating. Now that I am on low ogestrel I am very satisfied indeed, my body feels normal for once no stomach cramps in between periods or anything. Its awesome to feel normal again. I would recomend this to any woman out there that have a hard time with birth control. :)
