    This pill is very easy to handle. A simple swallow without any water and you can barely taste it! however, the past day or two I've experienced terrible nausea and bloating.

LOL but other than that, its a pretty good birth control pill.

    This drug is an excellent birth control. But after having my first child, I am having bad side effects on this drug. It is causing me to have very bad nausea and depression and while I was losing a lot of weight before getting back on birth control, I am not losing any now. I have actually put on 5 pounds after having lost 50 over the last year. I am going to talk to my doctor about switching to a ... Show Full Comment
