Comment:
I had taken Microgestin for a couple years, but when they stopped manufacturing it, my doctor switched me to Junel. Within a few days of starting Junel, I started noticing that I felt slightly nauseous and very anxious whenever I was in a public place or driving my car.

Comment:
This is my first BC pill I ever started and after seeing all these reviews, I have no idea why it's the total opposite of what I've been experiencing. I always take it at 10pm and the morning after I took my first pill, I felt a bit nauseous, but after I took some advil, it went away, and I haven't experienced any bad side effects ever since. Sometimes my breasts do get tender before p ... Show Full Comment
