I was taking microgestin for over 2 years with no side effects. In January, my insurance changed and I had to change pharmacies. The new pharmacy gave me junel. I have been very anxious, depressed, incredibly emotional, tender breasts for most of the month....just overall not myself.

I posted on this message board a little over a year ago and here I am again with an update with my experience on Junel. Like I said in the first post, the first 2 months that I switched to Junel were not so great; I had heavy and irregular bleeding, but after that my periods were really light and only lasted about 3-4 days. They always came on the same day every month, I did not gain any weight or ... Show Full Comment

I have been taking Junel for three years now, and have had no side effects. I have gained a few pounds, but I have also went away to college so it could be due to different eating habits. Other than that I really like this birth control, I don't have any spotting or mood swings as mentioned in many reviews.

I was taking microgestin fe 1/20 but the pharmacy gave me this one in replacement for two months. Since taking Junel I've had headaches, mood swings, acne break outs on my chest, fatigue and low libido. I didn't have any of these issues on microgestin. I also have been on orth tri cyclen and had no issues. I called the pharmacy to make sure they give me the microgestin from now on. Horrib ... Show Full Comment
