Horrible side effects from this pill. I have been on this for 2 years and begged to be moved to another pill. I was offered the nuvaring only but I was not comfortable with wearing the ring. With that said, my doc would not switch me. I HATE this pill. I have mood swings like a mental paitent and I have no libido - not good for my hubby so prolly thinks I am having an affair.

After week one of using this drug, I knew it would be difficult, but I continued. This drug made me very emotional, to the point where anything made me cry. I slowly becamed depressed. I suffered with two periods a month with very heavy cramping. It was horrible. I would strongly suggest using another drug. Nothing about taking this drug was easy. The side effects are completely unbearable.

I will say that Junel prevents pregnancy and gave me a short, light, reliable period, which I appreciate. However, I've been taking this drug for over a year now and I'm realizing it's been the most miserable year of my life! I've been an emotional wreck with out of control anxiety, no sex drive, nausea and digestive problems, and my acne has been so terrible that I don't even ... Show Full Comment

I'm not happy at all with this bc. I've taken this pill for a year without giving the pill it's due credit for my symptoms... I've been moody, irritable, bloated, 2 periods per month, AND a squashed sex drive. I'm switching pills ASAP.

I have been on Junel for 4 months. The first 2 months I was bloated, tired, moody. I wasn't liking Junel at all. But for the last 2 months I have felt so much better on it. Im not emotional anymore, I don't have mood swings and I don't feel bloated at all. My periods have been so light to the point where I just spot for a few days. Give this medication a chance, it may work for you. It ... Show Full Comment
