    I was on this medication for approximately 8 months before needing to switch to a different BC pill. I loved that my doctor was letting me take it back to back (skipping placebos). My skin overall was pretty clear however would have bouts where it would flare up and break out a lot on my chest. However I began spotting constantly after 6months of taking it. I also noticed that my migraines increas ... Show Full Comment

    I started taking this birth control pill after being off of the pill for two years. I gained 10 lbs during the five months that I was on it, and I felt hungry all the time. I was also extremely tired while I was on this pill, I felt like I could seep all day and I felt depressed. I also experienced severe breast pain, something that I have never had a problem with before taking this pill. I ha ... Show Full Comment

    I started using this after my original birth control, Loestrin 24 (which was AMAZING) was discontinued. The only bad side effect I noticed was HORRIBLE acne on my forehead, some on my cheeks and chin, as well as some on my chest. I did not have mood swings,depression, anxiety and my period always came on time every month, which were good. The only reason I need to switch from this birth control ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    I am very new to birth control pills. Last month was my first month on the pill. My doctor originally prescribed me Junel. By the 2nd or 3rd day I was an emotional, paranoid, anxious mess and by the 5th day I was breaking out like crazy (huge cysts that I rarely get normally). I continued breaking out for the duration of the pack. I was extremely unsatisfied with that brand and asked my doctor for ... Show Full Comment
