When I went on this I had terrible mood swings and depression. Things that would normally be minor annoyances would lead to hours of crying and wondering how I would up in that state. I felt completely out of control of my own emotions.

I have been taking this pill for close to six months now. No one warned me that one of the side affects could be hair loss. Now I'm losing patches of hair. Switching to a non-hormonal copper IUD. If hair loss or thin hair runs in your family STAY AWAY!

I didn't think I was having any problems until I read the side effects of them. I have noticed that my contact lenses bother me more frequently than before, and I have noticed some hair growing on my neck/chin that I didn't have before. Other than that I have had a good experience with this BCP. I was originally prescribed it because after I had my 3rd child, my post partum bleeding never stopped and less than 24 hours after taking my first pill, the bleeding stopped and now I can have regular periods.

Loestrin is a great birth control! It has completely stopped all periods as well.
