At 23, this was my first BC pill. I was skeptical at first because I was losing weight and I did not want it to slow my progress. I am currently on my 5th pack, no pregnancy, but the hormonal acne and the mood swings are absurd. I never experienced acne in my life and at the end of pack one- boom- pizza face status. My doctor didn't believe me as they prescribe this to people with severe a ... Show Full Comment
