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

Comment:
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 hav ... Show Full Comment

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.
