I am back with Desogen, well its really the generic form (reclipsen). I took Desogen for 5 years and I loved it, my period was 3 days, no cramps, no headaches, no tiredness, no mood swings, perfect skin. I hope this time works just like last time. Yaz was a night mare, and ortho tri cyclen lo wasn't as bad, but nothing like Desogen.

I have also put on about 5-10lbs but I could afford to put on the weight so I am okay with that. To be ... Show Full Comment

I would discourage anyone from using this birth control pill. Six weeks into using this drug I started experiencing visible hair loss. I have not taken it for 3 weeks now and my hair is still falling out! If I would have read that hair loss was a side effect b4 taking it, I would have asked my doctor to prescribe me another pill.

It's been almost a month since I've taken this contraceptive, and I absolutely cannot stand it. I switched to this from Yaz, and I am planning on switching back ASAP. I have felt so unhappy since I've started, and have had horrible and uncontrollable mood swings several times a day, it's unbearable. I've also had a headache every day since I've started the pill. It's go ... Show Full Comment
