My hair started off out after 6 weeks on this. Huge amounts of hair, it clogged my shower drain. I took this pill everyday right on time, I set my cell phone alarm to remind me, even doing that I still had a period every 2 WEEKS!!!! I put up with this for 6 months hoping it would adjust to my body, but it never did.

I've been on a few different types of birth control, starting with Yasmin. I found they all made me get three week long periods about every 17 days. Yuck! But the most intolerable thing was they made me a different, intolerant, b*tchy person with no interest in intimacy.

I normally do not cry often, but since taking Jolivette, I cry at the drop of a hat. It is ruining my relationship. I feel so depressed and I am normally a bubbly, happy person. I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me. The pill w ... Show Full Comment
