Comment:
So I choose this birth control for a few reasons. I have a heavy flow for about 4 days and major back pain as well. I also have mental health in my family so I'm not one to mess with the chemistry in my body to much. Picking a birth control with just progesterone was my best option. I've read the other reviews and I must say that I haven't had the same effects. My body type is 5.6ft ... Show Full Comment

The first few months of being on this pill was hell. I had two week long periods, breakouts like crazy, and gained a little wait. I talked to my doctor but this is the only pill I can be on due to migraines. YOU MUST BE PATIENT. The pill works, just irregular periods.

I advised anyone that gets this drug, to find out all the side effects. This pill has had me on a period for 3 months consecutive. Out of all the 20 years of me using birth control, this has been the worse pill by far for me. I immediately called my doctors office and asked to be switched back to what i was on before. She advised that every woman is different, but this is by far the worse for me. ... Show Full Comment

I've only been on Jolivette for a month & a half after Planned Parenthood decided I couldn't pick up at the clinic anymore & to go to my pharmacy and obtain it free there. I was on Micronor.

Comment:
The first 3 months on this drug was great, then I got the worse cramps of my life and a really heavy period. Two weeks later I got my period again and it won't go away. My dr won't put me on anything else as I have migraines and said it may take up to a year for my body to get used to the pill. Its horrible!
