I'm going on my third month on this pill and have been pretty satisfied. I've had no horrible side effects like others have complained about.

One MAJOR advantage was that it heightened my sex drive.. me and the hubby love this :)

I don't get one and it scares me. I feel I have to take a pr ... Show Full Comment

I read all the other comments, and would like to say I am very pleased with Microgestin Fe 1/20.

I don't have any mood swings any unusual change in my sex drive and notice that my period comes right on time as it should. I will continue use of this product. I ... Show Full Comment
