    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

    I havent experienced any of the side effects that others are mentioning. I have been a tad bit emotional since starting it but that's improving (I've been on it for two months). My only serious issue is that I'm having 12+ day long periods. When they said "birth control", I didn't think they meant "we'll make your period last so long you'll never have sex to ...

    The first month, I was completely fine. I took it exactly as instructed, and began to be sexually active two weeks into it. I had only mild side effects such as bloating, breast swelling/tenderness, and spotting. The second month (this month), however, I have headaches, fatigue, liquid out of one of my breasts, frequent urination, and most of all, incapacitating nausea. I take it at night right af ...

    The first two months I experienced sore nipples, however during those two months my breasts grew a little over a cup size. Let it be noted, though, that I also gained five pounds and had an increased appetite. It hasn't affected my sex drive, though I've had a little bit more acne for a bit. Junel was the fourth birth control I've tried, and I had horrifying mood swings or physical con ... Show Full Comment
