Comment:
I started Junel to take the place of Estrostep Fe, which is a triphasic or "low-dose" OC. Junel has caused me amenorhea, weight gain dispite diligent weight loss efforts, and stomach bloating and GI upset. I will switch back to the low dose OC.

Comment:
Junel Fe has been pretty good for me. Its effective and the iron pills prevent me from being sluggish the week of inactive pills. I don't think I have had any emotional side effects or any other problems with it.

Comment:
i used this because it was suppose to give me 3 days of period. I'd get three days and then like very low beleeding for two more days. I got PMS almost throughout my cycle and there'd be months where i'd have no sex drive whatsoever. I'm switching now because my mood swings and sex drive on them are horrible
