    I've been on Balziva for about 6 years! I don't experience really any cramps at all, no acne, no weight gain, my mood swings are light and so are my periods. My periods last about 2-3 days really, sometimes I don't even have them which is concerning. I guess that would be my only complaint actually..sounds crazy but I kind of miss having a normal period! I've talked to my doctor an ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on multiple birth controls over the years… this pill was by far the worst. I immediately gained ten pounds, developed cystic acne, experienced a lot of bleeding, vision was blurry, my breast were constantly sore, became depressed and my mood swings were out of control. I tried this pill for two months and could not take it anymore! I do not recommend if you usually take a pill that has ... Show Full Comment

Incredibly happy one moment, completely depressed the next. I have absolutely no sex drive since I started taking it. And since I've started taking it I'm almost always bloated. I'm naturally reall ... Show Full Comment
