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.

I have been trying to find a pill with a lower dosage of estrogen, and my doctor prescribed Aviane. However, I am now getting headaches daily and on occasion get very dizzy. I will be asking for a different BCP.
