I have never been on any type of birth control ever in my life. I decided now to start. My gyn suggested this brand that she uses. I took the first pill and by an hour I had severe nausea.

I am 30 years old and this pill had given me acne that is indescribable after being free of any blemishes for years. The NAUSEA is the worst, I have had 2 babies and never even had morning sickness to this extent!! I am not taking it one more day, I am miserable and feel like I have had the flu since the day I started taking it. STAY AWAY!!!!!

I started taking this pill b/c I already have three children and was not ready for anymore. I began taking it in march of 09 and now in June of 09 I am pregnant. I had terrible acne and swollen breasts. I lost all desire to have sex at all. Plus the fact that I am out the money I spent on the pills for a product that didn't do it's job.
