I've been taking this BCP for 9 months and went from 113 lbs to 128 lbs...and am still gaining! My appetite is horrific. I just called my dr to schedule an appointment for an IUD.

It caused abnormal cells to grow on the outside of my daughter's uterus and she was bleeding for three out of four weeks but not ovulating. This means the blood she was losing was because of the abnormal cells the drug caused to grow - not her period.

I went from having an 8 day period to a 2.5 day period which was its greatest advantage. Sadly it also gave me increased feelings of anxiety and helplessness and I was having aggressive mood swings as well as tears over nothing. Good for the body, VERYbad for the mind. I don't think I've ever felt this anxious. Being on this doesn't make me feel 'right'.
