DO NOT TAKE! I've been on b.c pills for 3 years now and Planned Parenthood switched me to Chateal. HORRIBLE! Ive gained weight, lost sex drive, had mood swings and anxiety and my face has broken out badly. Thankfully I saw everyone else's reviews and realized im not the only one here. Going back to planned parenthood tomorrow and getting my stuff switched ASAP

This is the first time taking this birthcontrol, I was on ocella and when my insurance ended I had to go to planned parenthood and they gave me chateal.

Worst experience I have had with a birth control. I got it from Planned Parenthood as a lot of women have.

I also had horrible headaches that didn't go away and felt like complete crap 24/7. I absolutely do ... Show Full Comment

I'm 22 and I've been taking Chateal for about three months now. So far no scares. this is my first time on birth control because my boyfriend and I thought it would be a good idea. On the plus side my periods are lighter and my boobs are a size bigger, but the downside I'm a complete crazy person. One second I'm happy the next I'm bawling my eyes out and scaring the ever living ... Show Full Comment
