When I had stopped using the Depo shot because of my massive weight gain, my doctor had told me to use Ortho Micronor because I have migraines. The first 3 weeks, I was fine, the next week or so I started gaining cystic acne and before I was on the Depo shot (and during) I had clear and healthy skin. I was so shocked, of how bad my face is now. I hate this product so much, it took a toll on me. I ... Show Full Comment

I was put on this medication a few months ago when I was diagnosed with high blood pressure. Prior to taking this, I was on a combination birth control pill.

I will be calling my doctor tomorrow to make ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
My doctor switched me to this nine months ago to combat uncharacteristically high blood pressure. While it prevented pregnancy, my primary concern, the side effects were horrendous. The first month, I was a walking nightmare emotionally. I felt anger and rage most of the first month, sometimes for no reason. It wasn't until very recently that I realized it was Micronor, but since starting it, ... Show Full Comment
