    I have been taking this pill for eight months now and developed terrible acne on my previously clear skin. I have also gained weight and gone up in a bra size. No vomiting or nasuea which has kept me on it till now but I can't look at my face like this any more so I have to get off of it.

    I have always had trouble taking birth control pills until now. Lutera is awesome! I have zero side effects other than losing 20 lbs. of weight with no dieting. My body transformed immediately. Sex drive is still very good and no more mood swings.

I have trouble swallowing pills, so I like the fact that Lutera is a very small pill. As far as symptoms are concerned, I've noticed that I have slightly more frequent mood swings before my period, which in my case means more crying than usual, but nothing ... Show Full Comment
