    I was on Previfem for a year. I was pretty satisfied with it. I have struggled with my weight my whole life. My boyfriend & I talked about me getting off of the pill to see if perhaps it was causing me to gain weight, seeing as how my diet and exercise routines didn't seem to be working quite as well as I thought. I have been off of the pill for 2 weeks now, and honestly I do feel a few ch ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on Previfem for 3 months now. Pros: has shortened my periods from 7 days to 5 days. Cons: slight nausea after taking the pill first 2 months, which was not too bad since I would take it later in the evenings. But it has started to wear off. Other than the nausea, I think Previfem works great as a pill form for birth control.

    On my second month of Previfem, its my first time using birth control and it definitely hasnt been the best experience either. My boyfriend and myself have noticed crazy mood swings, one minute I'm fine next I'm completely balling my eyes out. I've gotten very depressed and have gained about 2-3 pounds, nothing dramatic. I've also noticed minor headaches, bad nausea and an increase ... Show Full Comment

    Currently finishing up my first pack of Previfem. I had some severe mood swings during mid month of he pill, I was fine one moment and was crying hysterically the next. Thank goodness that's over. I feel great aside from all that! Had some headaches at the beginning, but that went away too. I'm on Tuesday of the placebo pills, anxiously waiting for my period to start. For anyone else, what ... Show Full Comment
