    Comment:
    I'm extremely satisfied with this birth control. After coming off a horrible experience with Junel, I was skeptical but it has been great. Minimal breakouts (only scars left over from Junel), anxiety has gotten way better, and I am not pregnant (most important!)

    Comment:
    Unlike several other users, I really like the Falmina birth control. I have not experienced any adverse side effects, and have found it comparable to Aviane. Little to no weight gain, and much much better than the Microgestin FE, which I have also taken.

    I was given Falmina as a substitute for my normal Aviane. Since I began taking it I have suffered from stomach pain, weight gain, appetite changes, and severe migraines. I gained 15+ pounds from taking this even when I was still doing 70 sit-ups and walking 1 mile a day. Do not take this product.

    Since the first week of starting this I have had severe pain in my belly and lower back. It hasn't gone away or gotten better. My pill is changed around a lot. This has happened before with certain pills, but this one is the worst.
