    While this pill fulfills it's purpose to prevent me from becoming pregnant, and is easy yo remember, I absolutely hate it. The first month was okay, I broke out a tiny bit but I felt like that was to be expected. However, in my second month, I started bleeding during the second week of the pack and continued to bleed right up until the end of the month. The period stopped and I decided to have ...

    Aubra was a bad first experience with birth-control for me. Maybe its just me but my body didn't react well to the drug. I automatically felt nauseous right after the first day of taking and also developed migraines. I never got my blood pressure checked but i have perfect vision and a week after taking and I started getting blurred vision and feeling very sick. I felt more tired than ever, ev ...

    I got this medication from Planned Parenthood for birth control reasons. I've only been on Aubra for about 2 months but I feel that's long enough to tell if my body likes it or not. The first month for me was a little rough. I had headaches constantly and had mood swings. Basically, I've gotten all of the side effects from using hormonal birth control this first month. I am nearing ... Show Full Comment

    I have read TONS of reviews where ladies have complained about experiencing terrible side effects such as weight gain and mood swings. I know prior to taking Aubra my PMS were so bad. I would get mad at my boyfriend all the time but this month I have been very mellow and calm. also it has really lightened my period. I usually go through 4 super tampons every day but now I only go through 1 super t ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking this for almost a month and a half, so I think it's been long enough to review. I have never taken any birth control pills before and got mine from Planned Parenthood. Foremost, it's effective since I'm not pregnant (let's keep it that way for now). Periods are slightly lighter, but I've always had a light period. I have acne-prone skin. My skin has slightly ...
