Comment:
I just started my 8th month of these pills. Good news- not pregnant, skin is very clear, no big issues. Bad- I would always start my period on the last day of the sugar pills (when I should have been stopping). So period was always a week late. More annoying than anything. Going to chat with the Dr. tomorrow about changing pills to regulate. Wish this would have regulated me, I like it otherwise.

I didn't experience any weight gain or increased appetite, and I've actually been able to lose weight. My skin has cleared up tremendously and I hardly ever break out anymore. I never had any nausea ... Show Full Comment

I'm glad to see that I'm not just going crazy with the side effects I've been getting on this pill. I have been in a long depressive state since taking these pills...lost interest in lots of things, headaches (which I never got before), extreme fatigue, and I felt like I couldn't think straight. I just stopped taking it. I'd rather be in a good state of mind and get pregnant ... Show Full Comment

Taken for 6 years. No problems before or after. Just taking it for birthcontrol. Like any other pill it increases your appetite learn how to control it and you wont gain weight. mind over matter!
