This birth control is horrible! I swapped from Yaz to Mononessa and it was the worst mistake! For the entire first month, spotting/light bleeding everyday. Furthermore, breast tenderness, SEVERE anxiety, weight gain and severely swollen ankles.

I went thru a series of tests to figure out why I have high blood pressure. Everything came ... Show Full Comment

This is sign of blood clots and I plan on g ... Show Full Comment
