    I’ve been taking this pill for 5 months and it’s my first prescribed birth control. I’ve had no imbalances, I haven’t been feeling any more or less depressed, I haven’t gained any weight, or anything unusual. My period flow is very reduced and only lasts about 3 days, which is great. The only strange things that has occurred is I’m a bit more irritable most days, compared to when I wasn’t taking t ...

Finally stopped taki ... Show Full Comment

    I started taking this medication and less than 2 weeks later I began to feel severely depressed and felt huge amounts of anxiety. I couldn't sleep because the anxiety was so bad and I have never had emotions like this. I have taken other kinds of birth control pills in the past and haven't ever had an experience like this. I've stopped taking the pills in hopes that these feelings will ... Show Full Comment

    I started taking this birth control in the fall of 2017 and by March or April 2018, while my period was very light and I didn't get pregnant - my moods were terrible!!! I already have issues with anxiety and I'm pretty convinced this pill made it worse. I'm planning to switch...

    I've only been using this pill for about 3 weeks. It's the first birth control pill I've tried. I've had nausea almost 24/7, especially the past couple days, and fatigue where I feel physically drained at all times. Plus dizziness and definitely more irritability in the past week. Definitely debating switching. Not sure if I should wait and see if the effects go away.
