I haven't gained weight yet, but it makes my appetite unbearable, I'm either starving or have NO appetite at all. The only positive result is that my skin has cleared significantly.

I have also had some irregular cramping, but my doctor told me that may happen the first couple months. I am on my third day of my inactive pills and have yet to start my period
