    21 years old. Started using this BC right before I turned 20 and have never had an issue. I have had lighter periods and have not fainted or had cramps since being on the pill. Haven't gained weight. Super effective with no side effects.

I look and feel bloated and have gained weight around my stomach. The bleeding is pretty heavy and It seems to not let up. I start my second pack in 2 days, so hopefully it will get better or I will switch my birth control.

    Have just about finished my first pack of this bc. I have definitely experienced a wide variety of symptoms, starting with acne. I used to get terrible acne and about a month before starting this bc I had finally cleared it up, after starting this bc the quality of my skin is spiraling out of control again... not to fun. Secondly I have gained about 5-7 lbs this first month on it... I am naturally ... Show Full Comment

    Was given Pimtrea this month in place of Kariva from my pharmacy and so far no issues or side effects. Didn't expect any due to the fact its the same prescription with a different name and appearance . Will continue to use this prescription
