I was on Ortho Tri pill and the patch in the past, never had the nausea. Since I started this pill, I wake up at night with nausea and have it through out the day. I will not take this one again.

I have taken this drug for about a year. I took it after I tried having the shot which messed me up.

I've been taking it for a month and a half now. It's helped my moods swings TREMENDOUSLY.

I was on Yasmin for years and decided to go with a cheaper pill. I guess you get what you pay for because after being on this for three weeks I had bloating, gas pain and weight gain. I would not recommend this pill to anyone.
