    Had to switch to Junel Fe after the previous pill I was taking was no longer covered by my drug company. This pill has given me so many issues with acne, a low sex drive, and major depressive episodes. Definitely do not recommend this pill as it has given me so much trouble. It’s not worth it.

    This pill is terrible! Been on it 5/6 months now, and the first couple months were great, up until a couple months ago. My symptoms went from nonexistent to absurd. Mood swings, cystic acne, terrible and very noticeable bloating, ungodly nausea that doesn’t get better, insomnia, no sex drive, crying over nothing, feeling depressed, disliking myself, intrusive thoughts. If I had known this low dose ... Show Full Comment

    Iâ??ve been taking this Bc for 2 months. Initially I had mild nausea that subsided after a week, and light spotting for 5 days. No weight gain, no changes to my mental state or other side effects. So far no babies. I highly recommend this birth control.
