I have been on this form of birth control for a full year. It took my body three months to adjust to the birth control to where I noticed clearer skin, weight loss, etc. However I lost my sex drive recently, I still experience inconvenient breakthrough bleeding, and I had severe depression/mood swing issues with this pill. I retrospect I should have switched to a different pill a while ago however ... Show Full Comment

This is the worst BCP I have ever taken. It does what it's supposed to do - prevent pregnancy - but I think that's because my libido is non-existent since starting this pill.

The most important thing for me with birth control is that my mood stays happy, and ... Show Full Comment

This works great as a birth control. BUT it caused horrible mood swings and turned me into a crazy, angry, bitch. I'm so glad I have found other reviews that state the same things. I am done with this birth control. It made me feel crazy.
