While taking this medication for almost 2 months,I developed chest wall pain. In all my years I never had a problem with any other birth control pills before. I called my doctor and had it changed. I'm not taking any chances.

I was off birth control for 9 months when I started to have some problems around the time I got my period. So the Dr. put me on Mononessa. I have been on it for 2 months. I don't feel like myself. I have horrible muscle tension in my whole body, headaches, and my right leg has ached for the last 6 weeks. I am making an appointment to see the doc and getting off this stuff. I hate it!

Comment:
I was prescribed Mononessa because I had continual breakthrough bleeding with Yaz and Yasmin and Ortho-tri-cyclen. I gained approximately 10 lbs, and began having extremely heavy cycles with clots. I called my doctor to change prescriptions, and she recommended that I take the pills continuously, skipping the placebos. So, I will try that for a month or two before totally changing pills.
