I was also switched from Aviane to Falimina randomly at the pharmacy. I have been taking it for 3 months now and have called my doctor to switch back to Aviane. I have gained 10 pounds in the 3 months and feel bloated all the time I work out 4 times a week aggressively and eat well.

I was switched to Falmina to help with acne and to start having periods every tenth week. I love it. I have had no spotting and short periods when I do have them. It also helps with acne a little bit. Plus, I'm not pregnant!

Comment:
I'm extremely satisfied with this birth control. After coming off a horrible experience with Junel, I was skeptical but it has been great. Minimal breakouts (only scars left over from Junel), anxiety has gotten way better, and I am not pregnant (most important!)

Comment:
Unlike several other users, I really like the Falmina birth control. I have not experienced any adverse side effects, and have found it comparable to Aviane. Little to no weight gain, and much much better than the Microgestin FE, which I have also taken.
