Iv been using Junel for over a year now, the first 13 months went by with complete satisfaction but then I took 2 months off and just went back on.. I am dizzy and nauseous with no appetite. Super annoying but Junel makes me gain weight and I cant wait to get my boobs back! (I lost a full cup size when I stopped taking it for 2 months)

Been taking junel for almost 2 years..very good birth control..have not become pregnant or had any scares.
