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 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. :)

I was previously on ortho tricyclen lo, and my periods were coming early every month, only about a 2 1/2-3 week break in between. So my doctor switched me to lo-ogestrel. Needless to say, they definitely stopped the early periods. They are very regular now and very short for the most part. The only down-side is, I never previously had menstrual cramps, fatigue, irritability, and this BC seems to c ... Show Full Comment
