    By far the best birth control I've ever had. I tried 2 before and they sucked. They made me gain weight and didn't even help with my period which is one of the major reasons why I got on birth control. When I first started it, it gave me major mood swings but after about 2 weeks it stopped. That was the only bad part. While on it for only 2 months I lost about 15 pounds and it helped so mu ...

    I have been on this particular BC for over six years. I am 25 and took it as a result of a bad experience with Loestrin. I personally like the pill. I haven't had any migraines, weight gain or moodiness. The only issue I have is a decreased sex drive. I have recently though about trying another BCP to have a sex drive again. My doctor has prescribed Yaz, after reading the reviews of Yaz, ... Show Full Comment

    Easy to use and very effective. Accidentally skipping a dose allowed me to take it as soon as I remembered. I was careful for the next few days thereafter...just to be on the safe side.

    Took Aviane for a few months, and wasn't very pleased with it. I was very moody and became angry all the time, which almost caused my dad to kick me out of the house. It almost completely killed my sex drive, messed up my menstrual cycle to make my periods come 3 or 4 days earlier each time, and made me gain about 15-20 pounds of weight. Just switched to Yaz last week, hopefully it works bette ... Show Full Comment

    I've been on Aviane since I finished breastfeeding my son, over 9 years ago. The effectiveness and ease of use are typical for all of the low-dose combination pills (take it every day, at the same time of day and it has a low failure rate). No mood changes, breakthrough bleeding, or weight gain. I take it for birth control as well as to keep my cycle regular and it continues to meet my expecta ... Show Full Comment
