    I was originally using the combination bc pill, but after some chest pains and other problems, my doctor suggested this pill. I love it! No bad side effects, no weight gain, acne, or any of the problems others have listed. It has less side effects for me than with the combination pill. The combination pill would make me sort of moody, and I felt it decreased my sex drive also. None of this wit ... Show Full Comment

    I was on this for 45 days. Had to stop because I felt like I was having a stroke. It messed up my heart rate, waves of numbness and tingling thoughout my arms, legs, hands and feet. Random nausea which has not stopped, dizziness, severe calf pain that was hot, varicose veins appearing in less than a month, no period, severe anxiety, severe mood swings. DO NOT TAKE THIS DRUG!!

    I started this pill last month as I thought it would be better than the combination pill because the less things you put in your system the better. Well let's just say I'm with one girl I saw post she could'nt wait to go on her old bc pill, than God I've still got repeats left on my Triquilar I'll take that any day over this. I never had many side effect but the ones I've h ... Show Full Comment

    I started this pill after my postpartum checkup after having my second child last year...I hated having to take it at the same time, I could never find a good time without forgetting or taking it late because I am very busy with two kids and appointments and school. I had to get this particular pill because I was breastfeeding and the depo caused me to gain weight and make my periods irregular. Be ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on it for about 2 weeks now and I don't like it at all. I started taking it right after my period was over and guess what, I have my period again. I am moody, cry at the drop of a hat and get mad for no reason at all. I am stopping because I can't live like this. My poor husband o and my depression is back and in full full swing where I had it under control before.
