    HORRIBLE! First off my doctor didn't even really explain this "mini pill" to me until I researched it. But I was on this joke of medication for about 2 months after I had my son.

    Well I wish I had read these reviews before trying this new birth control. My doctor recommended it to minimize side effects associated with other pills. I got pregnant within months of switching. My doctor said it was because I must've taken a dose at the wrong time. True, I didn't realize there was only a three hour window. This is different than every other type of birth control pill!! ... Show Full Comment

I had terrible,terrible migraines, had kind of like a psychotic attitude, depression, mood swings, and no doctor i had seen could tell me why. Those things weren't really normal for me. I switched doctors and she told me it was likely the estrogen making me have all those symptoms and reccomended ortho micrano ... Show Full Comment
