    I've been taking Lutera for about a little over a year now and I'm not happy with it. Lutera is the new generic for Alesse. In the past year I have gained 15 lbs, and went from a 34C to a 34DD and I hate my boobs!! I hate hving to buy bigger shirts just so that my boobs can fit! My sex drive is there I just don't get extremely wet which is horrible. I would not reccomend this pill

    Lutera is the worst medication I have ever been on. It gave me horrible mood swings and depression, and when I got my period, I also had terrible cramps. Once a month I got a painful cyst that hurt like hell, and then pooped after a few days. Stay away from this contraceptive!! I am now on Alesse 28 which works very well for me. Aviane didn't give me any problems either.

    I got on this pill 3 months after my doctor advised me to get back on the pill. I had been off YAZ (the worst pill on the market) and never felt better. After 2 packs of Lutera I started having terrible moods swings, decreased sex drive and migraines. I decided to stop taking this in the middle of a pack and now I can't stop crying. I am crying daily and I have insomnia and anxiety. I am norma ... Show Full Comment

    It has caused me some abnormal bleeding in between periods, but the blood has been bright red. It has also caused me some depression, and detatched feelings. Other than that it has been great, i havnt gained weight, my once extremely painful and heavy periods have become light, pain free and just better overall.
