    Comment:
    While it does exactly what it is supposed to (birth control), I have experienced almost all of the moderately severe side effects after taking the pill for two weeks. I started taking a different birth control pill in December of 2010 and experienced mild side effects including migraines and stomach pain.

    Comment:
    Although the pill is effective and easy to use (if you have no problem reminding yourself everyday) It made me way too emotional and decreased my sex drive, but that could be because of the mood swings. I have tried many BCs and always had what I thought were worse side effects like random heavy bleeding, hairloss, and even hair growth (in the wrong places, ew) but non of that it turns out is wors ...

    Comment:
    I have used Reclipsen for 10 years now. When I first started taking it I had some mood swings and gained a small amount of weight, but once my body was used to it all of that went away. I have many friends that have taken the low estrogen birth control or ones where the dose changes throughout the month and they seem to have many more side effects than I have ever experienced. All in all I have ... Show Full Comment
