This is only the second BC pill that I've taken and I totally love it. Definitly satisfied. My previous BC made me ill, rude, radiculously emotional (would cry at the drop of a hat) and made me feel anxious contiually. I ran to my doctor at the worst of it and switched to AVIANE and I've never been better. I haven't been overly emotional, mean or sick. Plus I've had very light peri ... Show Full Comment

DO NOT TAKE THIS PILL! Gave me migraines, daily extreme fatigue, nausea, racing heart beat, and made me vomit (and I have a stomach of steal... I usually only get stomach bugs every 5-10 years).

I am about to finish my second pack and am done with this pill. I am switching to LoSeasonique. Being on Aviane I am very moody, sort of angry quite a bit. My breasts are very tender and I have gained a little over 5 lbs. in a month. I also have very frequent migrines being on aviane. It's not worth feeling horrible on bc.
