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.

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 ...

I have taken previfem for 1 year now. This is the first pill I have tried and overall it is good but I think I will be switching. Pros: -Much shorter, lighter, and less painful periods (went from 7 days to 4, no more IBS, went from 100% unfunctionable pain to about 15% pain during period) -Breasts went from A cup to full B cup :) -Didn't gain more than 5 pounds Cons: -My occular migrain ...
