    I have found this brand of BC to be great. I've been on it 5 years. I do have acne that is a little worse than normal around my mouth/jaw (one a month) but everything else is good. Periods are lighter, no bloating, no mood swings, no weight gain, no other adverse side effects. I do get headaches around my period sometimes since I've been on this.

    I've just recently started taking this birth control and I've already had a bad reaction. It caused nausea, dizziness, fainting, numbness, lack of sleep, and chest pain. I originally had no idea what these symptoms were from, so I did my research and saw other reviews with these same side effects.

    I was switched from ortho tri lo to this because I was bleeding for almost three months straight. Haven't experienced any negative side effects. Everything seems the same other than the ironically absent periods. I completely missed the first one and my second one was only one day long. I took a pregnancy test after the first missed one and it was negative so I'm hoping the one day per ... Show Full Comment
