After one week of taking Hummel I got my period. And it continued until I finished the pack. I decided to stop taking it. I continued my period for an additional 2 weeks. It's been a little over 2 weeks since the bleeding stopped. I haven't had my regular cycle yet. I also broke out like a teenager. This pill was definitely not for me.

I used to take tricyclin and I was emotional as ever. With this, I am not emotional just around my period. I've been taking it for 4 months now, and so far so good.

When I was first put on Junel I had the 20mg dosage, it caused a very dark discharge for me, I was immediately taken off it.

Comment:
I started this pill just over a week ago. I am already completly crazy. I had to take ZANEX to counter act the mood swing side effects of Junel. I hate pills, and to need a mind altering drug to help me with my BC side effects is unacceptable. I have been feeling like hiding latley. I am sometimes picking fights and feel very unhappy and worried. I am dweling on things that are insignifigant ... Show Full Comment
