    The worst birth control I have ever used in my entire life. I used to take Azurrette and, like others, CVS switched it out for this new kind. I have been taking it for a little over three months and it is TERRIBLE. My first period on it lasted for over two weeks when normally it is just a few days long. It was so heavy and not at all what I was used to. I also experienced migraines and heavy mood ... Show Full Comment

    I had been using an estrogen-only pill for five years before my doctor switched me to this (she says its more effective). I have been extremely moody--very angry-acting since taking Viorele for the past 12 days. I'm stopping this and getting back on the other pill immediately.

    Everyone around me says I'm different since being on this pill. I feel depressed and angry and fat to sum it all up. My boyfriend says I'm mean to him now. I do catch myself acting like this and it is starting to make me wonder if i need to just chuck this and be done with hormones altogether. Or am i just crazy?!? It's been two months on this pill..

    I have only been on this birth control for a month and I just can't take it anymore. I have become so depressed, I'm already depressed and it got MUCH worse. I was extremely sad one minute and the next I was kinda and then really angry. Mood swings are a real problem!! I didn't get acne, my cramps were about the same. And my boobs were swollen but not painful. My libido was decreasing ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on Viorele 28 Oral for 3 years. I have started peri-menopause and was having Hot Flashes. My gynecologist gave me this b/c to help with the hot flashes and I have had no problems. I believe that any medication will act differently on anyone. If you can't handle a medication speak to you physician about the problems and solutions that could be happening.
