    I was on Cryselle for 2+ years up until 3 weeks ago (now TTC). Went on it for cramps/long-heavy periods/and bc. Did not gain noticible weight but I was on other BCs for 4 years before this one so maybe I just didnt notice. Worked great, prevented pregnancy, somewhat shorter/lighter periods, and was able to skip them if I wanted. Also very predictable- knew when my period would come every month! Ho ...

    I started taking this about 6 months ago and since I have become very moody and stressed more than normal. I lost ALL sex drive. I also was constantly feeling bloated. I was not happy at all with how this drug made me feel.

    I tried to hang in there through the side effects, but had to stop this pill after 6 weeks. With Cryselle, I had worse migraines, non-migraine pounding headaches, 10 lb weight gain in 6 weeks, acne in weird places (low back, legs, chest), water retention (puffy face), moodiness, and scary painful muscle/body aches. Going to talk to GYN about non-hormone birth control options.

    I was on Cryselle for 6 months and I'm sorry I didn't switch off it sooner. It made me extremely moody, emotionally unstable, and even depressed. For the first 3 months it gave intense stomach pain after taking it, though taking it with yogurt seemed to help. The worst was my sex drive decreased drastically. Soon as I switched to a different brand, my libido was up again and it's been ... Show Full Comment
