This is the first birth control I totally love. I've been on it for over 2 years. I take it on time every day at the same time. I never have my period unless I decide to take myself off the pill for a month just to cycle. I don't get any mood swing or have I gain any weight. It hasn't affected my breast size one bit. I'm 28 years old standing at 5'3 tall and weight 125 lbs. I&# ... Show Full Comment

Horrible mood swings, irritability and overly emotional. I'm a fairly even keeled person and this pill has made me feel so emotionally labile that my relationships have suffered. Also have had terrible cramps, heavy periods, unrelenting breast tenderness and lowered libido. This is my second time around with this pill and both rounds were awful.

Extremely emotional mood swings, increase in acne/pimples, heavier and unpredictable periods, stomach cramps/pain. This pill must be taken EXACTLY at the same time, each day to be most effective.. not practical for most people, including myself, not for me...I threw the pills away a few days ago. Still having serious mood swings but so glad to be off them. Never again!

Comment:
I had been using Nuva Ring before this pill but had to go off it due to migranes. I had mild acne and regular periods before starting this pill and haven't noticed any change...if anything my periods have been slightly shorter/lighter. I did have 3 times when I had an "extra" period in a month but over a two year span of taking this pill I don't think its a big deal. The only ... Show Full Comment
