    This is the first birth control pills I’ve taken and I’ve only had one side effect which is weight gain. I’ve been taking these for about 5 months and everything seems completely fine.

I also found myself having a short temper which I do not know if it had anything to do with it. However I did find that I was not able to ... Show Full Comment

    I was on tri-lo-sprintec for months. I could not figure out why all the sudden I would be furious about something insignificant, then feel like crying 10 minutes later than back to normal.

Some occasions my shortness of br ... Show Full Comment
