    I LOVE Mononessa. I have been very lucky to have no negative side effects. It has be effective against pregnancy which of course is the reason to take it but has also cleared my skin and helped with unwanted body hair. It has also improved my moods amazingly. Best prescription Ive ever taken!

I was then switched to Mononessa for 3 months, during which time I really didn't notice much of a difference, or so I thought. I was then switched back to Ortocyclen for 3 months and now back to Mononessa going on my 4th month. YIKES! My pharmacy kept switching me as the avail ... Show Full Comment
