    Although this birth control has been great to me for about 3 years... I recently got off of it because me and my husband decided to try for a baby. While being on the pill I had no acne, no weight gain, little to no cramping, lightened and shortened periods. The side effect I'm now experiencing is EXTREME weight gain, I'm talking 10lbs in a month! Obscene bloating and fatigue. I'm hopi ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking this medication for about three years now and have not had any horrible side affects. I still have cramps, but they were decreased by this drug. I also experience tenderness of my breasts a week before my period. No nausea or major mood swings. No change in acne and a slight weight gain. Overall, it is a good medication.

Also I usually get a cold sore once every 2-3 years and since being on this pill (4 months total) I have had 3 cold sores!

    This is the first birth control pill I have taken. I have been taking it for about a month now and besides having headaches I haven't really had any major issues. Now, my appetite has decreased which is fine with me and my acne has pretty much stayed the same. I can actually say that I feel balanced taking these pills and don't feel at all irritable or anxious. I haven't experienced an ... Show Full Comment
