    Comment:
    I have recently started taking Microgestin, and so far I am not convinced that this birth control is fit for me. I am 5'3 and only 103 pounds so the dosage of the birth control may be too strong for my body's liking. I have been feeling nauseous, extremely fatigued, and have experienced somewhat of a lack of appetite when it comes to certain foods. Finding the correct form of birth cont ... Show Full Comment

    I was on Microgestin for a year and 4 months. For some reason my doctor prescribed Gildess the past two months and its been terrible. Id say overall for me personally, Microgestin is a winner. Its very effective in the birth control area which unfortunately means my fun parts have been alittle dry since being on Microgestin. I still have cramps and alittle PMS but its bareable seeings how I can bu ... Show Full Comment

    I have not got pregnant but since on Microgestin I can not lose weight, swell, and breakthrough bleeding during the middle of the pack. I take them continually so I will not have a period since I am 49. Because without the pill I am like clockwork and very fertile still but has very heavy bleeding.

    I started taking this pill when my period started back after giving birth to my daughter. The first week everything was fine. I seemed dry but didn't accredit it to the pill until reading other posts. The second week I got a nasty headache for a couple of days then started bleeding just like I was having a regular period but I am still on active pills. I am on day 6 of bleeding with normal ...

    I was prescribed this pill in order to A. prevent pregnancy and B. control an incredibly heavy, irregular period. It accomplished both of these things beautifully fpr the 5 months I took it. I had severe nausea the first week, but it quickly went away. I was satisfied with it until I started developing sever mood swings and depression as a result of the pill, on top of slight weight gain/acne. The ... Show Full Comment
