Due to a medical condition my doctor switched me from regular birth control to Errin. Within a week of taking it, I have noticed my skin is very oily, I have light cramps throughout the day, and my hair is abnormally greasy.

The only thing I like about this pill is that I am not pregnant. It has made my hair fall out and I bleed for at least 6days every other week. This is the worse thing ever I took my last pill 4days ago and did not refill. My husband and I will be resorting to condoms or something besides all the bleeding I'm doing there isnt much sex anyways.

My doctor prescribed this because I get migraines and should not be taking any bc with estrogen in it. She warned me that it was not as effective as regular bc but I figured it would be better then getting a stroke in my 30's. After reading the pamphlets I found out that this is only like 1-3% less effective than traditional birth control and way more effective than condoms. After 4 months on ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
This is my first month using this. I am on it only because I am nursing. Recently the side affect that I have experienced is really bad break outs. I am not positive it is from using this pill but usually I only get a breakout like every other month. Currently my whole face is broken out. Not too mention very oily. I would really like an alternative to it but I dont plan on nursing much long ... Show Full Comment
