    I have no idea why this hasn't worked well for other people. It's been the absolute best pill I have ever taken. On it I did have light to no period monthly which I did not mind, I had no cramping, headaches or breakthrough and it stabilized me emotionally. My insurance company stopped prescribing it, and everything thing I have tried since has been awful cramping, headaches, some making m ... Show Full Comment

    For a YEAR this birth control caused the worst acne/period of my life! I would have extremedy heavy/painful periods lasting up to two weeks. They would make me nauseous/dizzy, double over from sharp pains. If I forgot to take it for HALF A DAY, the period would start all over again!! I went to my Dr. to find out if I had endometriosis & ran a bunch of tests, even ultrasounds, but nothing was p ... Show Full Comment

    I am happy about how consistent my period had been since I started this pill but the fever I get occasionally and the muscle tightness is unbearable. I will be switching off this brand soon.

    I'm a generally happy and exciting person. After about a year of taking Gildess, I started having severe mood swings, paranoia, getting pretty anxious, acne would come from time and again. It helped with my endometriosis for the first 11 months but now it feels like it just came back and even harder. It does what it's supposed to do and that would be preventing pregnancy, but the way it ma ... Show Full Comment

    I have taken birth control for about 15 years, but only started on Gildess last year (less than 6 months ago). I never had side effects from birth control until I started taking this pill. I had rapid weight gain (despite healthy diet and exercise) -- approximately 20 pounds in a 3 month span. Fatigue, dizziness, changes in mood, night sweats, increased appetite, extremely sore and tender breasts ... Show Full Comment
