    So far so good. I've been on it for a little over a week, and haven't noticed any weight gain or extreme moodiness.

I talked to my obgyn and switched me back to microgestin fe 1/20 i took that before for a whole year and never had migraines. don't know why my doc changed it to 1.5/30 but ill never use it again! Other than that i didnt have any issues with the pill.
