Just started taking this pill and so far no complains. I bled for a couple of days. I take it at 8pm every night. I feel like my boobs are fuller. I dont have any significant symptons and my sexual drive is still there. It works different on everyone but so far, no complaints.

Comment:
I've been on Lutera for 4 months. I was a little apprehensive to take this particular birth control pill after reading the reviews of it. Fortunately, I had no real negative side effects.

There is an increase in discharge, which is one of the purpos ... Show Full Comment

I also got this weird pain in my rib cage for 7+ months that went away as soon as I switched to a new pill last month. No sex drive at all. Depressed. The only good thing about this pill is I didn't get pregn ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
After a few months of using Lutera, my periods were very light and only lasted about 2 days with the rest of the week only slight spotting. Plus, I didn't gain any weight (unlike Ortho Tri Cyclen which I took a couple years back). I loved that part of it. The downside? It completely wrecked my sense of sanity. I went from being a very rational person to a complete emotional wreck for the major ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I know that every body is different and will react differently to different brands of birth control. For me, lutera seems to be the right product. I used to be on Loestrin 24 but found that it was causing recurring BV and Yeast infections so I was switched to lutera since it has a lower estrogen level. So far, things have been pretty good. I have been getting some nausea and worsening of acne but ... Show Full Comment
