    I was having problems with irregular periods, so my dr prescribed me Solia. Being my 1st birth control, I was already hesistant in taking it but my dr specifically recommended it for me, and what did I have to lose! It did regulate my periods, but I also suffered from side effects. I was constantly bloated, to the point where my skin (hands, face, all over) looked puffy. I experienced an increase ...

    I see that I'm among the minority that likes this BC! I have been taking Solia for 6 months now and have never had any issues. I read a lot of reviews after my Dr. prescribed Solia, and I got really worried about gaining weight and losing my sex drive. I have been very lucky over the past few years as my period lasts about 3-4 days and is never very heavy, so I was worried this medication m ... Show Full Comment

    I never had any problems with my period until I started taking this BC. For the first time in my life I'm having cramps and headaches every month. The duration and heaviness of my period hasn't changed; luckily it wasn't bad to begin with. The worst thing has been the mood changes. I was a cheerful, optimistic, even-tempered person before I started taking Solia about six months ago ... Show Full Comment

    Ummm I'm probably the only minority that likes this medication. I have been on it for 3 years now. My periods are only heavy for a few days and then it becomes lighter. My period lasts for 4-5 days at the most. My sex drive has not slowed down at all and no vaginal discomfort. I did gained some weight and I did go up a cup size but it wasn't a significant amount of weight.

    I used to have a strong, healthy sex drive, but when I started taking birth control it disappeared. After trying a few brands, a doctor recommended Solia to fix my problem. What a nightmare. Initially, it worked. Then I started to get the most terrible breakouts around my period, and the cramps were unbearable. The sex I did have hurt like nothing else, and for the past month I haven't been ab ... Show Full Comment
