I tried Aleese and Junel and both made my breasts so swollen that it was incredibly uncomfortable. I was SO moody on them and cried it seemed every day. Birth control is not for me.

I've been on this birth control for 7 months already. In the past, I've tried: Ortho Tri-Cyclen, Nuvaring, Trinessa and the rest I just can't remember. I like Junel because it has the lowest amount of estrogen. I also like how it's made my periods last only 2 days, 3 days max.

At first I thought it was just my body getting used to takin ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been on this medication for almost a year, at first I had horrible nausea for the first couple of months. However, after awhile, it finally went away and I started getting a little bit of acne on and off for a month or two. Other than a couple of problems, I have a lighter, faster period (about 3 days) and I have not gotten pregnant, even though I missed a few pills throughout the year. Thi ... Show Full Comment
