DO NOT TAKE THIS! Yeah it is effective as far as not getting pregnant but the side effects are NOT worth it! Not only are you nauseous, weak, fatigued, depressed and all around crappy feeling, but the vomiting, mood swings, sudden crying spells, headaches and all over uncomfortableness is unbearable!!!! I have never been more sick in my entire life. Don't take a chance with this.

As far as this pill preventing pregnancy, it is just fine. However, the side effects are terrible. My insurance changed and I was put on this as the generic for Ortho Tri Cyclen. I immediately started having terrible side effects such as irritability, crying spells, food cravings, weight gain, stomach pains, nausea, headaches,depression, anxiety etc. This was the wort pill I have ever taken. ...

This is the only birth control I've used for at least two years. I've successfully avoided getting pregnant. This didn't make me gain weight or make me moody and crazy - being a woman does that all on its own. A 5 lb weight gain is nothing; most people fluctuate that much up or down every day! Besides, I would rather take an extra few pounds than a human growing inside me right now.

Started taking this less than two weeks ago and I noticed major weight gain. I've always been on the smaller side but just in two weeks I gained about 5 lbs. I decided to stop out it out of fear in would just keep gaining.
