I started taking this pill a little over 8 months ago. When I started I weighed 106 ate more than most teenage males, and hardly worked out. I now weigh 145 (thats nearly 40% weight gain) and I eat very healthily and workout for an hour 4-6 times a week yet I cant get the weight to start going back down. I'm 23 and have NEVER had issues with my weight (other than perhaps being underweight at a ... Show Full Comment

I've been using this pill for over two years. As much as getting a period sucks, I like that I know exactly when it will start.

By far the worst side effect I experienced was 10 days of non-stop bleeding, and about one a half weeks before my actual period was scheduled to begin.

I used Mononessa for 4 months but have since then switched to a better birth control pill for me personally. While the packaging of Mononessa is adorable and the pills are easy to swallow, it came with some unpleasant side effects. I was so nauseous and bloated during the entire first week. After the first week, things were fine and I didn't notice much, but after about two months, I started g ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Whatever you do, avoid this drug. I was switched from Minastrin to MonoNessa about 3 months ago. I have not been the same since I started taking this pill. Side effects such as nausea, stomach cramps, lack of appetite, pregnancy symptoms like frequent urination, extreme fatigue, severe mood swings to extreme depression, and massive migraines have all occurred within the first week of taking this p ...
