It has been effective in preventing pregnancy, although I thought I have been multiple times do to a lot of random bleeding and spotting. This pill is terrible.

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

Comment:
My M.D. switched me from Nuvaring to Junel (Loestrin) because I was having pain and bloating with Nuvaring. She thought Junel would help control my endometriosis better also. I was nervous after reading all the negative reviews, but decided to try. I have been on it for one month and so far I am pleased. I had stomach pain and nausea for the first seven days, but after I got past that I felt fine. ... Show Full Comment
