    I have been taking this medication for one month, and am super happy with it! I was taking Loestrin Fe (very satisfied), but the co-payments of $50 were too costly. I used Junel Fe generic, and had no weight gain or mood issues. I was very happy. My pharmacist gave me Gildes Fe this month (they were out of Junel Fe), and I have been nauseaus, gained 4 pounds, and having mood swings. I am going bac ... Show Full Comment

    Junel FE is the worst birth control I have tried in the past 9 years. I have only been on the medication for 2 months. I was on Ortho Lo and switched to Junel because I was having a small amount of breakthrough bleeding the week before my period while on Ortho Lo. Bad mistake! My breakthrough bleeding has increased...so much so that it's almost like having a second longer period in the same mo ... Show Full Comment

    This birth control worked in that I didn't become pregnant.. HOWEVER - I became EXTREMELY moody and pretty much bipolar. I would cry at ANYTHING and became very emotional and depressive. The WORST part was, it was hard to realize it was the birth control doing it to me. I've stopped taking this drug and I feel so much better! So much less anxiety, and I'm no longer depressed. Now I' ... Show Full Comment

    This medication caused me to bleed heavily and nearly continuously throughout the time I took it -- "spotting" doesn't begin to describe my experience. I had to wear a pad every day. I also had to purchase a whole new set of bras, because my old ones no longer fit. Awful. No reason to keep torturing myself for another month. Goodbye, generic Junel-FE, and good riddance.

    I started taking this pill a month ago, and just started my second pack. i went on it for both birth control and because my periods were 9 days long, with me throwing up every day! I’m 17, and so far, everything has gone fairly well. I had spotting for two weeks, but that was because i started taking the pill the day i was supposed to get my period, so none of the blood had drained and it was jus ... Show Full Comment
