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've been taking it consistently for a year, and although it has kept me from becoming pregnant, it has created a host of issues, such as weight gain, irritability and mood swings. I have an OBGYN appointment this month and plan to go back ... Show Full Comment
