I have been on this med for about 4 months. I mainly got on Junel due to the fact that I wanted to gain weight, which it indeed help me with. However, the breakthrough bleeding in-between periods sucks. And then when is my period coming??? who knows...it kind of freaks a 21 y.o. female out. Pregnancy is not a thing any person wants to guess on. A period tells us women that our uterine lining in &q ... Show Full Comment

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. When I did get my period, it was definitely short but the first day would be extremely heavy. I've now been on Junel for over 18 months and have altogether stopped having a period. Haven't had one in 7 mon ... Show Full Comment

I linked this to the bc pretty quickly because I've been in a relationship for 3 years and I went from wanted to do it all the time to NEVER. And I knew it wasn't him because now I don't even think ab ... Show Full Comment

I have just finished my first pack of Junel after switching from Ortho Tri. I experienced horrible mood swings with Ortho Tri which is why my doctor switched me to a lower dosage. My mood swings have been a little better now that I have switched to Junel but I have been very sensitive. I am on the week of no pills, (the 4th day) and I still have not received my period. I was freaking out but after ... Show Full Comment

I ignored all of the negative reviews for this and it was a huge mistake. I recently went on Junel for the first time. 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
