    I;ve been on Apri for 2 months now after switching from a lower dose bcp. I feel pregnant and hate it! I want to eat all the time and I've gained 5 lbs! I look bloated and my breasts are fuller but very sore. I have horrible cramps and extra heavy bleeding. My skin is fine- no acne. If I keep gaining weight I will ask my doc for a different pill.

    I've had only good things come from taken this pill. My breasts seemed to be more fuller, I've lost weight, and it cleared my belmishes. It's the only pill I've tried and I'm glad I have had no problems.

    I'm finishing up my 3rd month on this and I pretty much love it! My breasts have gotten noticeably fuller, it has had no effect on my libido, and my periods are more or less the same (they were normal flow, 4 days before bc). The only problem I have with this is that I am a bit moodier. I've had no changes in weight. I've actually lost weight, but I don't think that's due to Ap ... Show Full Comment

I would rather pay for Yaz than ... Show Full Comment
