    I was only on this birth control for a month. While I didn’t experience any weight gain, this birth control made me feel really bad. I constantly was cramping every day on it for the whole month and it felt like period cramps. I had no sex drive at all. But it did make my periods incredibly lighter almost non existent just like spotting at the end of the month. One con I noticed with me was whenev ... Show Full Comment

    I've been on Yaz, Gianvi, and Loryna and have had no issues. I switched to a different prescription service and they gave me Nikki. I noticed more break outs, greasy haid (which I've never had my entire life) and just an overall difference in mood/menstruation during my time of the month.

I had a few more pimples during the hormonal period however I wou ... Show Full Comment

    I took Nikki for about 3 months and I loved it. After reading and hearing so many negatives about birth control pills, I started my first birth control (Nikki) with some stress. When I started it, I had some bad nausea the first day, and minor nausea the rest of the first week, but after that, I never had a problem. The only side effect after that I experienced was minor mood swings. Taking Nikki ... Show Full Comment
