    I started Junel in October of 2018 but then stopped taking it due to chest pains that I later found out had NOTHING to do with the birth control. But after stopping Junel, i went on Depo (the injection) which caused me to have my period for two months straight along with consistent anxiety attacks. So then I decided to go back on junel to stop the abnormal period. And honestly junel works amazing ... Show Full Comment

    Took it for 2 years without any side effects, but now I'm pregnant! I don't blame the medication since I was not using it "perfectly" but more "typical use" with 91% effectiveness. I was just in that 9% failure rate. Thankfully I'm a 29-year-old married woman, so baby came at a perfect time when I am mentally and financially ready. Just be aware of the failure rate ...

    so I myself freak out and read all these reviews and that’s why I stayed off of birth control for like 7 years and have continued to suffer from pcos (hope to g*d it’s not endo but we’ll see with time hopefully) and I finally did it! I had no choice really. I had a severely painful ovarian cyst pop after sex (not my first time) and I decided it was enough of going to the hospital and suffering. I ... Show Full Comment

    I've been on birth control for years but this is my first time trying Junel Fe and it's not working for me at all. I just decided to get off of it to see if the side effects that I was experiencing was from the pill and so far so good. I was experiencing low sex drive, irritability, mood swings, and headaches. This is the worst pill I've ever had. I really think they should stop sellin ... Show Full Comment
