    I have only been taking this birth control for about 9 days, but I am already satisfied with my results. I switched to Loestrin from the Nuvaring because I was experiencing some pretty severe side effects. I'm noticing side effects from Loestrin as well, but they are MUCH more tolerable: slight nausea in the first couple days of starting and some spotting. No mood swings or depression, sex dri ...

    I started taking this BC after taking Yaz which worked better for me but kept here horror stories about it so I had to switch. I was on this BC for abou three months and bleed almost every single day from it. It also made me feel very depressed.
