    Horrible! Actually, it helped with my heavy periods.. That's it. I got bad acne, and I was basically a different person, horrible depression and anxiety! It's never been like that before.. it ruined my relationship.. it was a new relationship and I was a total crazy person.. It also gave me really bad discharge. Like constant all day everyday. Buuuut, I didn't get pregnant.. Lol.

    As far as birth control goes, Chateal does its job. It definitely kept me from getting pregnant and was very easy to use as long as you can remember to take the pill at the same time everyday (setting an alarm on my phone helped me). However, it gave me horrible acne. I would say if you have cystic acne (as I do) or are acne prone in general, do not use this product! It will only make your acne wo ... Show Full Comment

    This is my first time ever taking birth control pills but so far I am pleased with Chateal. I read reviews and at first I was too afraid to even try it, but I did and so far I haven't had any symptoms. No weight gain, no acne, no mood swings as of yet, if anything changes I will come back and review it again. As far as "effectivness" I only rated it 4 stars because my husband is curr ...

    I am currently using this product. I'm on month two. I have decided after the next month I'm switching to another. The last week of the pills was just terrible for everyone around me. The mood swings are no joke. Slight weight gain. Not anything major. I just hate being angry and not being able to have complete control over that.

    I switched to Chateal after having the implant for a horrible year. I have not tried any other pill. I usually take it as directed. By Wednesday of the "no pill week" (4th week) I start bleeding like a regular period, but by Saturday it is just light bleeding/spotting. I usually stop bleeding completely after about 8 days. Very nice in its consistency. The only time I spot in between is ... Show Full Comment
