Orth-Cyclen & it's generic brand, used as birth control, is wonderful! I have been on it for several months now. I have no negative side effects. It's very effective on preventing pregnancy! In my family we are all extremely fertile women, and my fiance and I started having unprotected sex a couple months ago, and I haven't had any issues with this birth control. It's also lightened my periods (wh...

I would say this is by far the worst birth control after taking this medication for only two weeks I suffered a massive stroke. I have no genetic predisposition for blood clots nor bleeding according to the extensive blood Iâ??ve had done. THis medication completely changed my life and for for the better I can no longer move my left arm, I have limited mobility in my leg and now suffer from seizures. I have contacted to manaufactured for compensation and help paying my medical bills and they could care less no lawyer is willing to help either apparently many women have to go through what I went in order for anything to be done. Please be careful and if possible donâ??t take this medication. I wouldnâ??t like for anyone to have to go through what I went.

omg i love this birth control so much. ive been on it for almost a year now and it's amazing. no pragnancys. the first few months i was always nauseous around 5 AM but that went away and I havent had that happen since. I had horrible acne before and after about 3 months of being on this all my acne is gone. Its very effective if taken properly. My boyfriend cums in me almost every day and Ive never had even a pregnancy scare. I do take it at exactly the same time every day so i'm sure that makes it more effective than if you take it wrong.

I started this medication 2 years ago due to very heavy bleeding during my cycle. I have some breast tenderness, weight gain, and breast growth. It's also good at preventing pregnancy too. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has tried other birth control and has had bad side effects.
