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
