I took this pill for almost a year. It worked well. I never got pregnant. As for side effects: almost never felt nauseous, went up one bra cup size, no big change in weight, no big mood changes, no change in skin appearance. The only reason I stopped taking it was because I've started to have breakthrough bleeding the past two months. Doctor was unsure why, but now she's prescribed me a n ... Show Full Comment

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.
