    I took Loestrin and only had break through bleeding once. My periods were very light. However, since 1 in 100 women get pregnant on it I never fully trusted it. It was also irritating to take it at the same time every day. However, it did ease the pain from my endometriosis.

    I've almost been taking this pill for a week now and I've been experiencing severe headaches, nausea and horrible mood swings. I have felt so bloated and tired since I started taking this. Everyone's body is different. Just wanted to share my experience. I won't be taking this anymore.
