My normal bc was replaced by this in January due to "high blood pressure" and I've had the absolute worst experience with it. I literally bled the entire first 3 months I was on it, constant mood swings (And I was never a cranky person during my time of month) and weight gain.

I have been using this for about 3 months and have been getting my period every other week. My breasts have been tender for at least a month. At times I feel like this is making me go crazy with my mood swings. I used to be on a progesterone only pill for a couple of years and never had any side affects. I will not be staying on this.

I have been on this bc for about 5 months now, and since then it has absolutely made me go crazy. I've been having crazy mood swings, being extremely angry, upset or crying over literally NOTHING or being extremely depressed, irritable, and at times suicidal. At first, I thought it was just depression I was dealing with, but turns out its this pill that is making me crazy! I bleed non stop, ... Show Full Comment
