    I've been on birth control for about 10 years now. I've taken brand names and generics of a lot of different pills. For the past few years, I was on Ortho-cept. It worked perfect for me. No problems, no side effects. Two months ago, my doctor gave me Reclipsen because they stopped carrying Ortho-cept. Suddenly, my anxiety tripled. I started being moody and depressed. I'm prone to migra ... Show Full Comment

    I just started my second package so it is early to say, but so far I am more than happy. The only side effect, which I hope will go away in a couple of cycles is the breakthrough bleeding (very light, just brownish, couple of drops a day for several days). Lighter period, less cramps. Nothing else is different than when I am not taking it.

    Is there any relationship between reclipsen and tachycardia. I am 17 years old and on the drug for 8 months. I developed tachycardia, unknown cause 2 months ago. My resting heart rate is 90-110, with spikes of 160-180 with physical activity. I am 5 foot 3 inches, 107 pounds. I am an alpine skier, and tennis player. If I run, my heart rate increases significantly and I am short of breath and dizz ... Show Full Comment

    As a counterpoint to all the horror stories, just thought I'd report that it works fine for me, with no noticeable side effects.

    Comment:
    I started taking Reclipsen about 4 months ago, and I would not recommend this birth control to anyone. First, my period has been continuing for over a month now. Second, my nausea is so bad I feel like I'm going to be sick at least once a day. I've noticed I've progressively fallen into a depressive and lethargic state that leaves me with zero energy throughout the day. My mood swings ... Show Full Comment
