Within the first 2 weeks of taking the pill I began to feel emotionally detached from my everyday life. My sex life became virtually nonexistent, and I began to feel completely numb and depressed. I am a migraine sufferer with an aura so I technically shouldn’t have ... Show Full Comment

I had to switch to this generic due to insurance. I am not happy with it. I had bad mood swings and severe constipation. Now that I am off the pill I have gone back to normal. I would not recommend this at all.

Comment:
I really liked using Junel Fe because I have really short and light periods (only last 3 days). The only reason I'm switching is because the hormone dosage is so low that if I take the pill a few hours later than I normally do, I have spotting. Other than that, a great birth control with almost no side effects (for me).
