The first few months, I would get my period on the days when I was taking the regular pills, not the placebos. I attributed it to my body having lower hormone levels than it was used to.

And I knew it wasn't him because now I don't even think ab ... Show Full Comment

I took Levora for 8 years and had no issues with it aside from a 3-5 pound weight gain, but after being off of it for a few months I decided to try another one that would potentially not cause me to gain weight. I should have taken the weight gain. This medication made me feel lik ... Show Full Comment
