Comment:
I have been taking Low-Ogestrel for over 4 years, and never once had a problem. Within 2 months my irregular period was now like clockwork. Had no side effects, no weight gain, mood swings etc. If you are a scheduled person (can take the pill at the same time every day) this will work well for you.

Since taking Low Ogestrel, my periods are much shorter, lighter and predictable, and cramps are not half as bad as they used to be. But it hasn't made much difference in my mood swings, breakouts, and bloating. Overall I am satisfied with this medication but may eventually switch to a different pill or ev ... Show Full Comment
