    This is my first time ever using birth control so I wasn't sure what to expect. A friend of mine had recommended this pill to me so I asked my doctor to prescribe it. My doctor told me to use it for 3 months so my body can adjust to it and I can really see if I don't like it. I've been on it for 3 weeks now, and I have also had mood swings and depression like other reviewers on here. F ... Show Full Comment

    I took Junel for just about 2 weeks and stopped. It was awful. I gained 7 lbs in the 2 weeks and had severe stomach bloating. No pain but my stomach- but the bloating was unbearable.

    I am on day 7, and I am destroying this pack today. I am typically a positive, bubbly, & sunny personality, but I am turning into wacko b*tch on Junel. In one week's time, I have swung from feelings of simmering rage, to normalcy, to numbness, and then to depression. I even told my husband I wanted to tear out a customer's jugular with my teeth today! But I knew I needed to stop wh ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    I recently got off Junel Fe. I took it for 4 months. I've never been a moody person, prone to crying or depression, but I definitely noticed these changes. Immediately, I noticed a change in my sex drive, but was unsure if this was due to the medication. After about 3 months I started having extreme emotional mood swings, and feeling depressed. I wasn't sure if it was me because I recently ... Show Full Comment
