I have been taking this medication for 7 months now because I am sensitive to estrogen pills. I have experienced weight gain and almost every month breakthrough bleeding.

I love my Jolivette! I've been on it for almost 2 years and have had only positive experiences and very minimal periods!

Comment:
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
