    I was prescribed this because of the terrible experience I had on my other birth control I was taking, and this one is much better. It's a lower dosage, but I never get nauseous, headaches, or spotting. The only thing I will complain about is my breasts feel extremely tender all the time and I had terrible backaches the first couple of weeks of taking the pill. Also, my face tends to break out ...

    I was prescribed Junel Fe and have been on it for a year and a half with no problems. Last month, my pharmacy substituted it with Gildess because they didn't have any Junel. They said the two medications were equivalent and that they should have equivalent effects on me. They couldn't have been more wrong. Gildess has made me nauseous after eating, and worst of all I am mad and grumpy ever ... Show Full Comment

    Pharmacist switched me to this and I HATE it. I've been on the pill for 2 years and never had breakthrough bleeding until taking Gildess. Also gave me bad acne which I never had before either. Do NOT take it, although it has been effective at preventing pregnancy the side effects are not worth it

    I used to be on microgestin and then my pharmacy switched me to gildess. It's been over a year since i've been on this pill. I HATE this pill! Supposedly, it's the same drug, just a different name but it is not the same pill for a number of reasons. If you don't take this pill at the same exact time every single day, you will experience spotting anywhere from 3 days-1 week. I also ... Show Full Comment

    I was given Gildess last month as a generic for Loestrin FE (usually I'm given microgestin FE, but I switched pharmacies). My hair started falling out in clumps! I called my physician and, after looking it up, she told me that Gildess has a higher physiologic effect on androgens, even though the amount of progesterone is the same as what I've been taking. They TYPE of progesterone has a ... Show Full Comment
