It did its job, it prevented me from getting pregnant. I do think it did effect my mood and caused me to become depressed and moody though.

After you get used to the nausea and the feeling your throat is closing after you take the pill; you just have to deal with the oily skin, acne attacks, moodiness and weight gain...oh yeah, I GOT PREGNANT too (not a bad thing, just suprised..and I didn't miss a pill) and then miscarried (horrible, not sure if it had anything to do with the drug).

I have only been using this brand of birth control for 2 months and I am not happy at all my face and hair is oilier and my period is so unregular, I have weird spotting that can last up to a week so Im all confused as to which one is my real period, I have missed a period one month and had 2-3 in a nother with several pregnancy scares. Calling the doc to get something diffrent ASAP!

My face has gotten oilier over the years as I've taken Cryselle and that should not be happening! If anything, I should have a drier face because I'm getting older. That's what I think anyway. Another negative is that my periods last for 4 days, so no break there either. I'm going to check with my doctor about switching.
