I have taken Ortho Lo for the past eight years. After my insurance encouraged me to use generics, I gave this one a shot as an alternative. Not a good idea.

I have an OBGYN appointment this month and plan to go back ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was prescribed this birth control by my doctor, not only for preventing pregnancy, but because of me severe migraines. I took this medication for 3 months and never missed a dose. I also used a second type of protection, thank God, because I have been getting letter's by the manufacture's warning me that for the past 6 months these birth control pills were not made with the right ingredi ...
