I've been on this pill for over 2 1/2 years now and its wonderful. I experience shorter & lighter periods, no acne, no changes in mood, and no weight gain. My doctor had suggested I take Loestrin at one point because she discovered a small cyst on one of my ovaries but that pill was the worst. I felt nauseous day & night for 10 days straight.

No symptoms of PMS, did not really gain weight. But I experienced spotting on my third month of use and am considering switching to Yasmin because I heard it clears up your skin really well.

Comment:
I started taking Ortho Lo after trying 4 other low dose birth control pills that either gave me headaches, chronic UTIs, moodiness, etc. Ortho Lo was the only pill that I have not noticed any unwanted side effects from. I have been taking birth control for over 7 years now and the Ortho Lo specifically for about 3. I would recommend trying this pill if others have not worked well for you.

I have been using this BC for 2 years now. Everything is always consistant and I dont have to worry about a thing. I would recomend this to others. My friends saw my ease in using this and decided to start as well, and they have had no problem. :) **Note ouur age range is 15-18. I personally am 16.

I was on this BC for three months, I'm a happy person and rarely cried, but weeks into starting this BC, I cried at the slightest thing my boyfriend said, and was so moody that I switched to a different BC.
