I have been on Junel for a year now and my sex drive has gone down hill ever since. I have also had issues with it making my hair fall out. It was great for decreasing my periods but I wont be taking it anymore...

I have been on Junel for a year now, and I have nothing but good to say about it! My periods are light (I have NO cramps, bloating, headaches, etc) & I do not experience any side effects from the pill. It is very effective as well. This is the first birth control I have tried, and I LOVE it!

I was put on Junel for ovarian cysts and pain during my period and since starting Junel, I haven't had any problems with my ovaries and the pain has gone down a lot.

I haven't had any problems with weight gain or acne either.

Comment:
I started taking this about 5 months ago, after having been on Ortho Tricyclen Lo for 4 years. Just two months ago I stopped getting my periods...which I assume is because of my body adjusting to the change in hormone levels after 3 months of being on Junel Fe...a little nervous and not sure why this change has happened.
