Comment:
I have been taking Junel FE 1.5/30 for four months now and my experience has been positive so far. I have been sexually active throughout the four months that I have been using it and it has worked for me (no pregnancy). It's so convenient once you get into the routine of taking it everyday. I take the pill in a very timely manner (I take it at 7:45am every day without fail) and I have not exp ... Show Full Comment

I was a bit concerned when I switched to this at first. I'm sure all of these negative reviews would make anyone uneasy. Anyway, I just finished my first pack on junel.

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. I get NO period at ... Show Full Comment
