    (I gave the ease to use three stars because I have to be reminded to take it) I was prescribed this birth control after taking Microgestion for awhile and it helped me put my body back on track. I was able to lose the weight I gained on microgestion, get my sex drive back, and also not be moody! I would recommend this to anyone!

    I was on Yazmin for years but started spotting. My dr switched me to Junel and it was awful. I was on it for five months and had two periods a month, was moody, emotional, and constantly picking fights with my boyfriend. I also felt depressed. Horrible.

    i started junel the sunday after my period stopped. i am now into the second month. i have had 2 weeks of spotting and 1 week in between of what i consider to have been my period (although 5 days earlier than last month). i have also developed a heavy amount of breakouts, even in places i don't usually get blemishes. i don't care for junel at all.

    No spotting, I like being able to control my periods, no moodyness, or depression or any other crazy symptoms. I love this product except, my sex drive is really low.

    Comment:
    I started taking Junel for bad cramps, irregular and heavy periods, and just as birth control in general. I had no side effects, but the first time I got my period after I started I had horrible cramps to the point that I couldn't move. I decided to give it another month and I had bad cramps, but they weren't as bad as the ones the time before. I will give it another month, but if the cram ... Show Full Comment
