    I miss this Rx so so much! Doctor swapped me out to Gianvi in early 2018 and I've been bloated ever since. I wish I knew what the closest thing was to this :(

    Although this birth control does its job (prevents pregnancies), it's the worst experience I've had with the pill. Walgreens switched me to Vestura earlier this year, and immediately thereafter I had UTI like symptoms and a ton of discharge for a few months.

    Extremely drastic mood swings. Have taken for months hoping it would get better but has not. Switching pills now. Don't take this drug, it doesn't get better with time.

    I've been on vestura for 5 years. Overall I'm very happy. I have extremely light periods that last only about 3 days (barely even need a panty liner) but every few months it seems to build up and it will be relatively heavy. No weight gain or loss, no acne, no real side effects to speak of for me. Rarely I'll have cramps but that's usually only when I have a heavier period coming.

    I feel absolutely crazy and my mood swings are out of control. I am breaking out and I am SO THIRSTY all of the time. This is terrible.
