    I've taken Microgestin Fe 1.5/30 for nearly 2 years and the last two packs I've taken have been HORRIBLE! I had extremely bad pelvic cramping, breast tenderness, a little weight gain, moody, and now I bleed all the time on this pill, even during the active pills. I can't wait to switch to a new pill. This pill used to be great, but I'm wondering if they have switched something in i ... Show Full Comment

    After my first month on the pill, I developed a yeast infection. I have not been able to clear it up for about 4 months now. My doctor said it wasn't related to taking the pill but I decided to get a second opinion. The next ob I went to said that it could very well be a rare side effect of this pill and advised me to stop taking it. I quit using this pill and took my last dose for the yeast i ...

    I started taking this pill after switching off from Ortho try cyclen lo, on which I was bleeding constantly. At firs I was happy, then I started missing my periods. My last period was October, 20th and I haven't had one ever since, even though I stopped taking it a couple of weeks ago. Home pregnancy tests came out negative and so was the one at my annual exam. I do not like it and only hope i ... Show Full Comment

    I am on the last week of my third pack of these pills. I switched from Ortho TriCylen Lo because I started having a lot of breakthrough bleeding on it so my doctor prescribed me to this monophasic pill. The first two months of this pill were good. The first month I was pretty moody the week before my period, but was happy that it made my period lighter and shorter. The second month it was even ... Show Full Comment
