I got my period twice in one month and have spotting in between. I'm not pregnant, I took various pregnancy tests and went to the doctor. I'm switching to gianvi.

I was on Camila for about 7 months after getting migraines on a pill with estrogen. At first it seemed okay, but as the months went on, I started getting terrible acne, gaining weight, and becoming very moody. I also started losing a LOT of hair. When I stopped taking the pill, I lost 7 pounds in a week without changing my diet or exercise regimen and my acne cleared up within a month.
