I have had no problems whatsoever. I've never been one to have problems with BC pills anyway. All this talk about mood swings and decreased sex drive...blah blah blah I don't believe BC has anything to do with that. The only problem (and not even a problem) I've missed my period or it is very light to non existant! And that to me is a blessing. I've always taken BC's that have stopped or lightened...

I was on another birth control before (Levora) and it worked pretty well, but I decided to go off of it for a while and then try another kind. So I went on Previfem after about 4 months. I have only been on it for 2 weeks and I know it takes a while for medications to fully develop in your system, but I have started having side effects. I am on a depression medication as well and recently I hav...

Ladies- be very careful before choosing a form of birth control, please make sure to cover every angle of birth control with your doctor. I am 17 years old and had been on Previfem for almost 3 months for cramps, and I noticed a swelling in my left arm. I went to the ER to find out that I have a blood clot due to a mixture of being a base in cheerleading for 13 years, having thoracic outlet syndrome (a compressing of my veins which I didnâ??t know I had), and taking Previfem because of the estrogen in it, which has been known to cause blood clots. Now I have to give myself blood thinner injections twice a day! Please make sure to talk to your doctor about all your physical activities especially if you are a cheerleader or gymnast or do a sport with the same repetitive motion! Good luck.

I've been taking Previfem for about 7 months. The first two months I was maybe a little bloated and nauseous but since then, I've had no side effects. I haven't gained weight on this pill, unlike other birth controls that I've tried and I actually feel like I've had less cramping/lighter and shorter periods. Love it!

After giving this pill a chance for 6 weeks, I finally had to stop taking it because of the crazy mood side effects it was giving me. I experienced extreme mood swings, irritability, and felt depressed. Before taking this pill, I had never felt this way before. Also, I had zero sex drive while taking this pill. The first few weeks I was nauseous every day, but after 2 weeks the nausea ended. Although the pill was effective, the side effects were not at all worth taking it and I switched pills
