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.

I took this for 5 years and it worked perfectly, I loved it. I switched doctors when I moved and the new doctor switched me to Loestrin 24. It was terrible! After taking it for 2 months I was miserable. I switched back to low-ogestrel and I am really glad I did!

Comment:
I switched to this birth control about a year ago after the previous birth control made me extremely emotional. Overall, I really like it. My periods come like clock work now and i have very mild cramps. I have noticed during my menstrual cycle I get a tad more irritable than I use to, but it's not really bad.
