    Reading over the reviews of this drug, I'm relieved that I'm not the only one who has been experiencing the side affects from taking it. My Doctor switched me last month from Loestrin to Junel. During the second week I started to not feel like myself. I felt like I wasn't really here, I questioned my relationship, I was just really lost. I've been off of it for about a week now and ...

    I had to switch to this generic due to insurance. I am not happy with it. I had bad mood swings and severe constipation. Now that I am off the pill I have gone back to normal. I would not recommend this at all.

    I really liked using Junel Fe because I have really short and light periods (only last 3 days). The only reason I'm switching is because the hormone dosage is so low that if I take the pill a few hours later than I normally do, I have spotting. Other than that, a great birth control with almost no side effects (for me).

    I took Junel Fe for three months and have had probably the worst experience of my life. Not only did i suffer from severe headaches and stomach aches, breast pain,depression, and loss of sex drive, but i developed huge red boils all over my face. I have been to countless doctors and they are unsure of my condition, however they all agree the pill was most likely the cause. I believe it may be a ... Show Full Comment
