    This was the worst birth control pill i have ever took. I had the worst leg pain, worst cramps, and stayed bloated the whole time. I kept a vaginal bacteria infection the whole time I took it. Would not recommend this pill to anyone.

    This has probably been one of the worst pills I have experienced! It made me extremely nauseated with horrible stomach pain. After 3 months of taking it, I have lost weight and it has made me very tired. It makes me feel like Im pregnant. I would not recommend this. I know the side effects are different with everyone but for me this pill was horrible.

    Yes, this pill prevents pregnancy, so I rated it a 5, it is easy to use, but I have experienced cramps with my period which is something I've never had. On the plus side of that, my periods are only 3-4 days long. What I really, really don't like about this pill is that every month for a week before I get my period, I break out BIG TIME! My skin is perfect & clear the first week, oi ... Show Full Comment
