I thought I was going crazy until I started reading reviews. I have been taking Junel for a few weeks and have had no motivation for anything but sleep. My headaches are terrible (I've never had one in my life), I'm completely exhausted and dizzy, and it always feels like I have a cold.

Let me start off by saying that when you are starting or switching birth controls, you really do need to allow a few months for your body to adjust.

I had persistent breakthrough bleeding for 2-3 weeks, constantly felt ... Show Full Comment
