I have been on this medication for about 2 years now and I have to say I'm absolutely devastated by its effects. Don't get me wrong, it has completely worked by not getting me pregnant, but I am experiencing some terrible side effects. Within the past year I have noticed a significant amount of hair loss. I researched that hormonal birth controls can definitely cause this because of the ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
This medication was one of the worst experiences of my life. I am a 19 year old woman, and I was put on Levora because I was forced to go off my previous birth control pill after I switched from Blue Shield to Kaiser.

I have been taking Levora for six years and have no complaints- normal weight, skin, and this pill got rid of awful cramps. Judging from some reviews this pill works for some and not for others. My doctor did tell me that this pill does not work for everyone, however. If you experience problems I suggest calling your doctor and switching pills.

Comment:
I started taking Levora to help with the breakthrough bleeding I experienced with almost every other birth control pill I had tried. It worked remarkably well for that, but the acne I experienced while taking Levora was not worth the trouble. I had pretty bad acne in high school, but it was nothing compared to the countless pustules I had during my 3 month trial period with this pill. I broke out ... Show Full Comment
