I have been on this pill after switching from Femcon FE for 2 months and I still have not gotten a period. I've had extremely painful abdominal cramps, intense fatigue, and heavy acne. I'm switching back ASAP.

I have experienced that I get easily pissed off on this birth control. I love Femcon but I find myself extremely moody and almost anxious on this generic version. I have not gotten to my period week yet but I just wanted to review for right now.

I've been on this pill for 3 months and out of the 3 months I've been on it there has been 1 week of no bleeding. Was told to give it 3 months for my body to regulate to the pill. 1 week into month 4 I'm going to see my dr to get off this pill. Horrible bleeding and constant migrains for 3+ months is by far long enough. Moody and snappy while on this pill. So sorry I agreed to take this one.

Have experienced very heavy cramping durring the entire month which I never experienced with FemCon FE. Spoke to OBGYN and was told to stayon it for three months to see if it works out. This is week 2 of the third month and nothing has chnaged. I also find that I am etremely emotional and experience symptoms similar to PMS all month long. My periods are very painful and much heavier(moreso than Femcon FE). On FemCon, I would have a minor cramp the day I was expecting my period and a light period would last approximately three days. On Zeosa, I have been in agony for approximately three days (doubled over in pain). My period is three days later than normal and I experienced a burst of blood that lasts for about 1 hour. This burst was far more than any feminine napkin could withstand. After the one hour beign stuck on the toilet while it poured out, all period symptoms are gone.
