I have always been paranoid about birth control pills. I experience bad pms symptoms to begin with mainly migraines, mood swings, and acne. However once I've started taking my anxiety meds the mood swings lessened.

Now, I weigh 125 pounds and have been for the past 3 years ... Show Full Comment

I don't remember any nausea (unless I forget to take a pill and have to take two in one day), even when first starting the pill; I haven't gained more than 5 pounds (but then again I'm in college, so ...

I'm switching to Loestrin Fe to see if the lower dose of estrogen will make my rash go away. Other than that unusual s ... Show Full Comment
