    I am on my 3rd month of Microgestin and am very happy with it. After my GYN prescribed it I looked at the reviews here and began to have second thoughts, but I'm so glad I gave it a chance. I've not had any nausea, weight gain, or change in sex drive. I still have a good libido, and though I did have some spotting the first 2 months, the irregular bleeding seems to have subsided.

    I've had a fairly good experience with this bc, no cramping, mood swings or nausea. My only complaint is that it really destroyed my sex drive and i've had a definite problem with dryness.

    I have been on BC for 5 years and this is by far the worse that I have ever been on. My breast have been very sore, it has caused terrible spells of on and off nausia and last month, before my period started and while on my period, I had the worse mood swings of my life. I would cry for no reason, get angry at the slightest thing and my usually healthy sex-drive was non-existant. In addition, in t ... Show Full Comment
