    I have only taken 10 of these pills and I'm already seeing side effects. I've lost my sex drive. I feel so depressed all of the sudden, I'm crying trying to type this. I was laughing and giddy about an hour ago. Every little thing that people do has been bothering me for the past three days. I'm having a hard time smiling and that's not like me. I constantly am happy and genera ... Show Full Comment

    I was taking Microgestin for years, which is a generic brand of Loestrin. Then one day at the pharmacy, they switched it to Junel because Microgestin was no longer available, they said it was the exact same thing. This pill gave me awful migraines (which I've never had in my life), and placed me in the hospital. I had many mood swings, weight gain, etc. I discontinued using Junel.. as soon as ...

    I had been taking Loestrin 24 FE for a while and when I got my prescription via mail order pharmacy they sent me this. I was totally against it, but called my dr. who advised it was fine. So, I took it for 3 months. I had breakthrough bleeding every week prior to my period starting, for a week. So, it was like having my period for 1.5-2 weeks. Also, in hindsight I see that I had terrible mood swin ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    I've been taking Junel for about three weeks now, and within the first few days of taking it, my acne got about five times worse than it's been in about 3 years (my acne's usually moderate, it's not horrible but it's pretty bad sometimes). This is the first birth control I've ever been on, and I've only heard that birth control lessens acne, so I don't understand wh ... Show Full Comment

    Before I took this bcp I took loestrin fe24.I switched because I started getting a lot of breakthrough bleeding. Within the first week of taking this pill I knew it wasn't for me. I started getting headaches which I NEVER get headaches ever, unless I wait too long to eat but it goes away once I do. Secondly, the cramping I experienced during my first cycle was horrible. In the 7 years I’ve had ... Show Full Comment
