    I am on my fourth pack of pills right now. The first two months were not that good, but now my body has adjusted I think. The first two months I was extremely moody and irritable. I am surprised my boyfriend did not break up with me. I was also crying over everything. By the third month, I was less irritable and now I don't cry any more than normal. I definitely have an increase in appetite, b ... Show Full Comment

    I've been very happy with Alyacen. I haven't noticed any effects on my emotions and it makes my periods super light, predictable, and easy. I had heard horror stories from others on "the pill", but this works great for me!

    I had taken Necon for 8 years, and randomly my pharmacy was no longer carrying it. They switched me to Alyacen, and at first there were no differences. After a while, I was getting odd red spots all over my face and nothing was helping them. After a month of taking it, I started becoming more anxious and depressed. Now that I have taken it for 4 months, my anxiety, depression, and anger are so ove ... Show Full Comment

    I put on this birth control after having an adverse reaction to Yaz. At first it was fine and my period was very light. I started to notice I was more snappish but considered it just PMS. Then I would have my "sad" days and just cry at the drop of a hat. I've always been a happy person but this pill made me think I needed to see a shrink b/c of the depression, anxiety, and anger it c ... Show Full Comment

    This drug is simply awful. In just 3 weeks, I have gained weight, feel extremely anxious, very emotional to the point of nervous breakdowns, my period became unpredictable and heavy, my belly is bloated, and my face broke out in strange red spots. I feel very bad and I just don't want anyone else to feel like this. Do not risk it; choose another pill!!!!
