    I am 24 years old and I took this for one month but decided to go off it. I had a few mood swings but nothing too bad. I didn't have the weight gain or period spotting that some people mentioned. I also had some headaches but nothing too bad and I'm very headache prone thanks to allergies. I had some mild nausea in the mornings when I took the pill, but it would usually go away within 5 to ... Show Full Comment

    I was put on this birth control about six months ago and at first I really didn't like it. I felt like my period became heavier and I became moodier. I decided to stick with it because I had a 3 month supply and I couldn't have been happier. About 2 months in many of these symptoms stopped. My face is completely clear and my period has lightened to the point where I didn't even have it ... Show Full Comment

    Overall, this was the best pill I've been on. Very limited side effects. No matter what pill, I've always gotten cramps but overall felt great on this pill (otehrs, not so much). Devastated that I can no longer recieve this from my pharmacy.
