I do have to say that in order to properly evaluate a birth control pill, you should be on it for 3 months. My first month was terrible. My breasts were SO tender, I was moody, I didn't feel well in general. After being on Junel for about 5 months, I am getting off of it as soon as my new health insurance kicks in in 2 months. The reason being that my breasts still get VERY tender about 2 week ... Show Full Comment

I thought I was going crazy until I started reading reviews. I have been taking Junel for a few weeks and have had no motivation for anything but sleep.

My goal and challenge will now be to find a form of BC that works without making me so moody. Any suggestions?

Starting about 2-3 months ago, I started getting what I thought was just PMS-type s ... Show Full Comment

I have been on this drug for about 9 months and I my biggest problem is absolutely no sex drive. The point in taking a birth control is because your having sex, but if you have no drive then there is no point. On the bright side I didn't gain weight or become moody from this!
