I've been taking Reclipsen for 2 months. The only problem I've experienced is severe pain while on my period. Which is part of the reason I'm not completely satisfied with it ,but the birth control does do its intended function of preventing pregnancy.y acne hasn't changed and I haven't experienced any weight gain at all. I plan to continue taking it.

I have only taken Reclipsen for three months and it's been miserable.

When I was 37, I was put on Apri to help regulate my periods etc. Before that I had been using a diaphram. I used Apri for nearly 15 years and then was switched to Reclipsen because that was what was my insurance would pay for. I was actually planning to go off the pill in a few months and just deal with menopause. However, one month into the Reclipsen, I landed in the hospital with a large pulmo ... Show Full Comment

My daughter 28 years old was on Reclipsen for one year and developed a DVT in her leg which traveled to her lung and now has a pulmonary embolus. The ER doctor and her pulmonologist both state that her birth control pill caused the blood clot and BOTH highly told her to get off birth control pills. She now is on Coumadin and Lovenox while they are working on getting her INR safely elevated. Thi ... Show Full Comment
