EXTREME EXTREME EXTREME NAUSEA like nothing I have ever experienced before. Have not even finished the first week of this birth control medicine and daily I get waves of nausea that have me nearly vomiting on those around me. Also loss of sex drive, depression, and sleepiness. DO NOT TAKE THIS MEDICINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Switched to the loestrin fe 1.5/30 generic brand after a year on the loestrin fe with no problems. Immediate mood swings and constantly hungry. Bloated and swelling in hands and feet.

I changed to this because the other 3 birth control decreased my sexual drive. So my doc told me she switch me to this and in 3 months to check back and tell her how its going. This is the 2nd day ive been on it and it feels great!... Ive been very sexual, and even more wet then before! Hope it stays like this..
