    I had been taking Reclipsen for 3 years, before I was randomly given Emoquette. In theory they both achieve the main goal of a birth control, however they are definitely not the same drug. I did not experience any side affects during my time on Reclipsen. I'm not sure why I was given Emoquette, but it caused acne (I've never broken out in my life), nausea, and terrible abdominal pains duri ... Show Full Comment

    This medication was the cause of a bilateral pulmonary embolism. I had only been taking it for a short time and ended up having blood clots in both of my lungs almost killing me. I went through very thorough testing to ensure I didn't have any type of blood clotting condition, and it was determined that I didn't. The cause of the clots was this brand of birth control.

    I switched to this bc because of hair loss. I was tested for everything and all tests were normal. I suggested switching pills to my pc to a bc pill with a lower androgen index in hopes it would help. I'm very satisfied with this pill. I have zero side effects with it in fact I no longer have sore brreasts like I did on the previous pill I was on. I also have noticed less hair shed. I am very ... Show Full Comment

    I had huge headaches, lightheadedness, dizziness, nausea, shortness of breath, rapid heart rate, fatigue, and extreme mood swings while on this pill. I took it for five months, thinking it would get better but it didn't. I don't recommend this pill.
