    I started taking Junel a month ago and now have started the first week of my second pack. The first month was okay: minor nausea, sore breasts, minor bloating. did not notice mood changes. not sure about my sex drive. I did not get my period during my placebo week. Now that I have started the second month I feel terrible! The most noticeable symptom is AWFUL BLOATING. 5 hours after I eat lunch ... Show Full Comment

    I originally was on Ortho Tri before my doctor randomly switched me to this, saying it was basically the same. They are NOT! I've been on Junel for almost 6-7 months now and after reading all these reviews I'm realizing a lot of my symptoms and problems are from this pill. First off, I have NO sex drive. At all. I do not desire it. And even during sex, when I try for my bf, I'm always ... Show Full Comment

    Junel was prescribed to me after being on a higher dose of hormones. Before I was depressed, had very bad migraines, cried constantly and was very irritable. Junel helped with depression and head aches but I have still been very moody and irritable. Especially the week before my period. Good thong is my periods have been light and short. Bad news is my skin breaks out in zits and I developed a ras ... Show Full Comment

    I took this pill for a year. Starting from the first pack, I never had a single period in 12 months, and I didn't skip the sugar pills. Major complaints: ZERO sex drive. Lost the ability to orgasm. Memory loss. Mild acne. Dryness. Benefits: It actually stabilized my mood, I used to have HUGE mood swings and panic attacks, both of which have totally disappeared. I rarely cry now, and when I ... Show Full Comment
