    Starting my third month on junel and I'm pretty happy so far. No babies, no acne, no weight gain, no loss in libido, and no emotional outbursts- I actually feel like I've been more even-tempered since starting this medication.

    This is the fourth brand of birth control I have tried and the only one that appears to work at all for me. But, as with all birth control there are side effects: some dizziness; nausea; anxiety and headaches; increased thirst (EXTREME dry mouth); and some spotting/breakthrough bleeding. I have been on this pill for almost 1 year, and I barely have a period anymore. Which is good an bad.

    I have been very happy with Junel. This is the 1st pill I have taken w/o horrible side effects. I experienced slight nausea and cramping on day 2, but that's gone away. I have slightly elevated hunger level, so I have needed to be conscious of food intake. No bloating, spotting, and weight gain. My libido has increased and my acne cleared up.
