It is so embarrassing, especially because it is very noticeable. I had never had this problem before. I also had trouble sleeping, acne (no prior acne before this bc) and found myself to be aggravated easily. I didn't experience a change in my weigh ... Show Full Comment

    I was very hesitant to go on birth control because I thought that I would gain tons of weight and I have also read all the horror stories.

    This is the first BC I have ever taken and it was an awful experience I have now been taking the pill for 10 months and this is finally my last. Before the pill I never had cramps, pms, or bloating, and now I have them all. The week before I get my period I cry over anything and that is soooo unlike me. The first few days my period is ridiculously heavy and I'm in awful pain from cramps. I usu ... Show Full Comment
