I was on this pill for four months. At first I loved it. After my fourth pack i missed my period and found out I was pregnant. I took every pill at the same time every day I did not miss any.

I got switched to this drug automatically through insurance. I had really bad mood swings for a month and was constantly crying. I have really bad acne and sever loss of sex drive which is straining my relationship. Side effects have not subsided after 6 months. I am switching asap because I can't take it anymore.
