    I started this drug because I had an ovarian cyst and it ruptured, abnormal period, acne and birth control. It is very effective on controlling all of which I was using it for. The reason I was unsatrisafied was because it made me depressed, aggressive and paranoid. I have switched to another brand of birth control with a lower estrogen level and I feel much better.

    The main reason I started BC is to avoid pregnancy. The other reasons were to regulate my cycle and give me relief. Before the pill, I had irregular, heavy periods, with cramps that would put me out of commission for a whole week. I never had problems with acne before the pill, and definitely have no problems after. My periods now are fairly light, very short (3-4 days). The cramps are still there ... Show Full Comment

    The only problem I have with this pill is that it makes my skin extremely oily, and therefore makes me break out. Very strange, considering I've been on Nortrel and Necon which is the same hormones and dosage. But it's awful. Aside from that, no side effects and I've experienced shorter, less painful periods. 3 months and no change, so I will be switching to something else soon due to ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on this pill for about 5 years now. It is effective for me, I haven't got pregnant for sure, but of course I take it the same time every day and use other birth control methods as backups just in case. The only thing that I'm not satisfied with is that I have gained sooo much weight. I weighed 110lbs when I started and now I weigh 133. My face also breaks out HORRIBLY. I'll ... Show Full Comment

    I was on Nortrel before but then I changed doctors cus our insurance provider changed. The doctor the prescribed Norinyl told me that it was the exact same as Nortrel and said that nothing would change and I wouldn't have any different side effects. 3 months went by and I went back to pick up my yearly supply and found out that this pill made my blood pressure sky rocket. I had never h ... Show Full Comment
