    I LOVE this birth control!! I was on this for 2 years, but switched to Yaz on the recommendation of my new doctor. Yaz was really bad...no sex drive, emotional, dryness...it was terrible! The only side effect I had with Microgestin was weight loss. I feel great and my periods are very light. I recommended this BC to all my friends b/c it has been painless to be on when compared to yaz.

    I started taking this just over a year ago to help control migranes and for birth control. I have only had 2 bad migranes over the year since being on the pill compared to several a month. The first dose left me feeling so sick. I missed the next 3 periods and freaked out thinking I had gotten pregnant. A trip to the doctor's and a blood test later revealed I wasn't. Since being on this pi ... Show Full Comment

    These reviews are depressing! While in college a friend recommended Loestrin to me and I've been on its generic ever since, over 10 years now. I had a child in 2005 and continued Microgestin awhile after that. I've been completely satisfied with the product. No weight gain or spotting, no extraordinary moodiness or nausea, very little cramps if I've been exercising and eating right, ... Show Full Comment

    I was very content, for 8 years, with a birth control called low-ogestal. I had my first child in Jan. of 2009, and was forced to try a new birth control after I had a handful of problems. I switched to microgestin, and I absolutely *HATE* this medication. This is the only medication in my life that I've ever had problems like this with. I'm not even a full week into my second pack, and I ... Show Full Comment
