    I am not one to write reviews but I felt it was necessary for this drug because of the way it effected me. I was on Loestrin FE for 7 years (without any problems) when my insurance changed and stopped covering non-generic medications. I was then switched to Junel. I am the type of person who never really believed drugs like this could effect you as much as they say they can but let me tell you thi ... Show Full Comment

    This pill is effective as far as not getting pregnant (that's the only positive). My mood has downshifted severely to the point where I am NEVER happy and I have never suffered from depression until now. I feel like I'm pms-ing all month long all of the time. My period has become extremely sporadic where it can occur twice in one month and then maybe not come for three months. I have the w ... Show Full Comment

    This birth control has made me extremely emotional, to the point of being crazy. It's made me think and feel certain ways that I know I would never feel pre-birth control self. It does prevent pregnancy and I haven't gained any weight; however the affect it's having on my emotions and behaviors are unbearable. Stopping this pill tomorrow because it's not worth the emotional strug ... Show Full Comment

    I'm 17 years of age and I started taking this when I was 16. At first for the first three months I have uncontrollable rage at the smallest things. And I took three packs straight not knowing you had to skip a week to have your period, after around six months I've found a balance. It has stopped my sex drive for a while, but my body seems to have adjusted and being the young hormonal Adole ... Show Full Comment

    I'm a 19 year old female, and I've been using this birth control for about 4 or 5 months now. I never pay attention to changes in my body from my birth control, until my period didn't show up this month. I see a lot of people miss periods while on Junel so, I would say this birth control works for preventing pregnancy, but I have NO sex drive. I don't think there's a birth con ... Show Full Comment
