I gained 10 pounds and saw an amazing increase in facial hair after starting this medication. I also noticed that I am always spotting. This pill is more affordable, but definitely not for me.

I didn't experience any mood swings or other serious side effects, but I would always begin bleeding the week before the sugar pill, which was a problem. Overall, pretty good experience

When I am on the placebo pills I do not get my period. When I am on the *real* pills I do get my period. I spot most of the month.I am going to get off this. I ahve been on it for 6 months just to be sure to give it a good chance, but this spotting is a real problem. I have been wearing a pad for the past 6 months of my life.

I took Junel Fe for about a year and a half. I got my period every so often not during the sugar pills. Which makes me think it wasn't protecting me from pregnancy. However birth control effects people in different ways. If you need a lose does pill than this might be the pill for you.
