This is my first month of Apri, I switched from Yasmin and have decided to switch back immediately. Has anyone realized a huge loss of sex drive? I have had no desire for any sort of affection since I started. I want to want sex again... help?

I have also been on this med for close to 6 weeks now, and I am experiencing horrible headaches, blurry vision, discharge and increased spotting before my period. However, my period did last for only 3 days, which is a plus.

I have been on Apri for about 3 years now... and it was fine at first, but I just recently started getting HORRIBLE headaches while taking the white placebo pills. I have also been more moody. Has this happened to anyone else... I'm constantly wondering what this pill is REALLY doing to my body!

Comment:
I have never been sicker in my life. I have nausea and vomiting starting three days before my period and continuing until three days after. Also, my period has never been so heavy, and has never lasted so long.
