I also lost all intrest in sex, which i guess is another reason why this drug may have been effective. I also had severe head aches. I stopped taking it for a month and learned that I had developed a cyst on my ovaries, which later on burst causing severe pain. The figure that was from the birth contr ... Show Full Comment

since taking this pill a little under a year, my cramps are horrible and I just recently found out that I 'd developed a cyst on my ovary! I have not been using this pill for about a month now and I feel like I am pregnant, but I am (doctor confirmed). The weight gain is a huge problem. I have since found a method that is 99% accurate and in not horomonal.

This birth control worked fine for me: it got rid of my cramps and prevented pregnancy. I've not been satisfied, though, because it completed destroyed my sex drive. I haven't had any desire for sex for the past several months that I've been using this drug. Before this, I was on Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo, and I think I'll be switching back to Ortho very soon.
