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.

This is the worst experiance with birth control that I have ever had! It turned me into a complete lunatic. I expect a certain level of mood swings but this was out of control. I couldn't focus, I got angry at everyone and then broke down into tears. I woke up every night for the first couple weeks sweating and jittery. Save you (and your partner) the misery and try something else. The emotion ... Show Full Comment
