    if you have headaches BE CAREFUL. I had migraines where i would see "light strobes", I went to a head/neck specialist and told me to immediately stop taking this pill, because it increases the risk of strokes, and it could have been impacting me.

    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.

    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.
