Well, the best I can say is that this drug has done what it's supposed to do. I haven't gotten pregnant since I started using it, but that's all I can say for the positives. To name a few of the issues this drug has given me: headaches/migraines with increased frequency, severe abdominal pains, nausea, mood swings, extremely strange periods, chest pains, tender breasts, and very freque ...

Women and girls, please drop this pill if you are experiecing depression, anxiety, dizziness, mood swings, and altogether bouts of unhappiness like me.

This is my third birth control pill that I have been on and have been taking it for 4 months. Loestrin FE was my first at age 16, then Ortho Tri-cyclen Lo at 18, and now Junel FE 1.5/30 at 20. I have a tendency to produce excess body hair (black hair on lower abdomen which I get bi-weekly electrolysis for) and this medication has made it so much worse. I am now finding hairs on my neck and chin. I ... Show Full Comment

I don't stress much and i'm pretty carefree, but i've been feeling like everything is awful lately when things are great. The period has been light and ... Show Full Comment
