    I was on this birth control for at least four years. Just about a year ago my pharmacy gave me another brand, Chryselle, instead. I regret taking those pills!! It took me a year to realize it was these pills that made me break out in rashes!!! I'm definitely switching back to Low Ogestrel! My face was like butter when I was on it, and I never had any side effects. Definitely recommend this bc! ... Show Full Comment

    I was on Yaz for 4 years to treat irregular and painful periods. It worked well for a while until my symptoms came back, so I switched to this. While my periods and cramping have been less painful, I've noticed a dramatic shift in my personality. I've been on this for maybe 6 months and have been experiencing debilitating depression. The worst I've EVER felt. I'd break down and sob ... Show Full Comment

    Twice I had to take this drug because the pharmacy had my other one on back order. Both times I got my period a week sooner than I was suppose to. The first time I took it I also got a rash.

    I've been on either Low-Ovral or Low-Ogestrel for 30 YEARS. I started when I was 17 and just turned 47. It worked perfectly for me. I went off twice purposely to get pregnant and I did within 2 month,s had healthy babies and went back on. But I'd like to know the affects it has on menopause. Anyone else out there been on it this long?

    I am SO glad I read through these reviews. Now I know the sadness and inexplicable depression I feel sometimes isn't me! It's just the medication. Now maybe it won't bother me so much. I have been on this pill for several years. Initially, I was placed on it because I started having difficult cramps with another med. The cramping didn't really get better, but I think in my ca ...
