    I removed my IUD due to anxiety and started this pill a little over 6 months ago. Initial side effects (yo-yoing between nausea and insatiable appetite) subsided in the middle of the second pack (about 6 weeks in).

    Im on my second week of taking this pill, and I'm really not sure what to think. Ever since I started taking it, I always feel nauseas, and bloated. I cant eat or drink anything without feeling like I need to throw it all up. So far, im feeling very emotional all the time. I most definitely wont take this pill anymore.

I just started the placebo pills in my first pack and the only real side effects I had were mild headaches, nausea, and occasional mood swings. But those symptoms seemed to go away after the first week and a half of taking the pills. After that ... Show Full Comment
