Ive been on birth control pills for 7 years now and I am 21. I started taking junel about a year and a half ago and stopped getting my period after 3 months... Haven't had a period in over a year which my gyno said was normal but I think I will switch pills anyway just to be safe. I have lost considerable amount of weight not sure if that is related to the pill or not

This medicine has caused a lot of weight gain for me. My appetite has increased considerably and this is not normal for me. I am a very slim person, or was before I started taking Junel. I plan to stop taking it for a few months and see if there is any improvement in my weight gain.

I started taking this medication in February because it was less exoensive then the one I was currently taking. A few months later I missed my period, but there didn't seem to be any other side effects. Although, after about 6 months of taking it, I began experiencing horrible mood swings where I would just start crying without warrant. I also developed heart palpitations, acne, and (the worst ...

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.
