    I'm almost finished my second month of this drug and i just got off the phone with my doctor to have it changed to yaz. This birth control is surely effective against preventing pregnancy in the sense that I had intercourse twice in the two months because I've been bleeding about 90 percent of the time since I started. Not just spotting, actual cramps and moderate bleeding. My doctor wante ... Show Full Comment

    This birth control is very effective! Although you have to take it everyday, it is worth it. It is really cheap for those who are young and have a budget, and works well! However, my biggest issue was the MAJOR weight gain. It makes your period significantly lighter, however, you gain about 10 pounds within 2 months. I used to exercise 2x a week, but now I have to exercise every other day just to ... Show Full Comment

    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.
