While my daughter was on this product she did not have a period. She became extremely emotional and anxiety ridden especially on the "Inactive weeks". Was given the generic form of this drug Gliddes for one month and she was horrible! couldn't get out of bed and extremely anxious. After reading reviews on this site we realized it was the JUNEL Fe.

I have been on Junel for about a year now. Pros: I no longer have cramps and i have a lighter and shorter period. I dont get headaches anymore. I havent gained or lost weight either. Cons: ive had a lot of break through bleeding, missed period for 2 months in a row, moodiness, and upset all the time. It works great but my boyfriend is getting tired of my mood swings.
