    I got pregnant after taking this pill. It didn't work and on top of that I'm over 35 where my chances of getting pregnant decrease dramatically. This pill does not work!

    I've had no problems with this birth control. The only side effect I get is headaches, but I only get one like...once a month. Not bad.

    I'm currently midway through my second cycle on Microgestin Fe. First cycle was fine - I got my period pretty early, but no other symptoms.

    Ive been using this for almost a year. Havent gotten pregnant. I take it everyday on time. Only missed a pill one time. When you miss the pill you will bleed early and cramp for about 4 days. I can no longer stay lubricated but there are ways to fix that. I really like the pill.

    I had the worst expirence with this birth control! I became extremely depressed to the point where I was living in my room for 2-3 months. I never wanted to leave my bed I was so sad, and emotionally unstable. Crying almost everyday for no reason at all. I didn't know what was wrong with me since I am not normally this type of person. I stopped taking the pills to see if that was the cause and ... Show Full Comment
