This pill was horrible. My skin would break out like crazy during my cycle that wouldn't go away for about 2 weeks, then it would just start over again for the next cycle! I woke up every morning with migraines that would make me black out for a couple seconds. Very nauseous all the time, very moody and emotional, and I gained about 10 pounds after taking it for 8 months. I do not recommend th ... Show Full Comment

I started taking this specific birth control exactly one week ago. I'm very good at keeping up with how my body reacts to a medicine. The morning after taking the pill, I woke up to my face completely broken out, reminded me of acne I got when I hit puberty.

I became extremely emotional as well, I ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I switched to Mononessa in order to skip my monthly cycle(you just don't take the period pills and you wont get it). To start with, the switch to Mononessa made me nauseous for 2-3 days. I was extremely emotional and would cry over anything (happy or sad things) lol. The worst part was that my face AND my back began breaking out with acne cysts, not just regular bumps. It was HORRIBLE! I have ... Show Full Comment
