    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.
