My doctor switched me to Junel because he assumed that I needed to be on a lower dosage BC than the patch. He was wrong. Unfortunately for me, I'm too busy with full time work and university to ever get in to talk to my doctor who lives in a different city. I've been on this for nearly two years, and it has been awful. I personally am awful at remembering a daily dose so that has repeatedl ... Show Full Comment

This was my first BC ever and I gotta tell you I am never getting on any BC EVER again. Doc told me to take it on my first day of period and I have been bleeding for two weeks and counting.

I do have to say that in order to properly evaluate a birth control pill, you should be on it for 3 months. My first month was terrible. My breasts were SO tender, I was moody, I didn't feel well in general. After being on Junel for about 5 months, I am getting off of it as soon as my new health insurance kicks in in 2 months. The reason being that my breasts still get VERY tender about 2 week ... Show Full Comment

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. I know you're supposed to wait a few months before knowing but I KNOW NOW. Don't take Junel. it& ... Show Full Comment

Especially after reading the reviews, I wish I had switched off this BC sooner. I've been taking it for a year now and have an appt. tomorrow because I realized my mood swings have gotten out of hand, I get upset so easily! My goal and challenge will now be to find a form of BC that works without making me so moody. Any suggestions?
