I really like this medication. I am on my second month and have had no problems, especially because I never forget to take it.

I took Sprintec for about 2 years before being switched to Mononessa by my pharmacy. I have been at my wit's end trying to pinpoint why I cannot stop gaining weight. I exercise 3-4 days a week, eat healthy, and have never had any problem losing weight easily. I have gained about 10 pounds over the past 6 months on Mononessa. I LOVED sprintec. LOVED it - never had an problems whatsoever and wis ... Show Full Comment

I had to switch birth controls because the first one was making me irritable and extremely depressed and then my second week into the pack I started having bleeding when i shouldn't have. So I was put on Mononessa and ever since I've had light to heavy bleeding and tons of clots and every now and then painful cramps which I never had and very tender boobs. Ov ... Show Full Comment

For the first few months, things worked out pretty well. My periods were regular and lighter, but now one month, my bleeding will be insanely heavy, and the next month, I won't have a period at all! I've been totally apathetic since I started taking this pill. As a college student, my grades have slipped, and I cannot focus or find motivation. I've been incredibly tired due to this med ...
