Comment:
I waited 1 month to write this review. Hopefully things will stay the same. First of all, I read quite a few reviews before I took this pill. Let me tell you, I was terrified. I paid more attention to the bad reviews because with my luck I would suffer from every bad side effect of this pill. My main concern was weight gain and mood swings. I broke out even in areas where I never break out (chest ... Show Full Comment

Last week, the pharmacy switched me back to Levora again and I have already had to stop taking it six days later. I couldn't sleep and woke up barfing ... Show Full Comment

Comment:

This worked well to regulate my cycle and lessen periods but apparently wasn't effective as I got pregnant in February and miscarried at 6 week ... Show Full Comment
