Comment:
I previously took Junel Fe, and then was prescribed Gildess Fe when Junel was discontinued (I think), and I've been using this for about 2 or 3 months. Anyways, I've never experienced spotting, but I have experienced missed periods and nausea. Overall, I feel like this has worked perfectly for me, and it's super easy to use, but it kind of freaks you out when you miss a period. When I ... Show Full Comment

I have never had problems with BC until I began taking this. I am so happy to read everyone else's reviews and see that I'm not going crazy.

I have no energy and feel extremely fatigued all the time. I have also had muscle stiffness/aches in my bac ... Show Full Comment

I previously used loestrin fe but it was discontinued so I was prescribed this. I have never had side effects from a bc in my life until now. I feel weak, nauseated and have constant throbbing headaches. I have no energy and have terrible mood swings. I am currently waiting my appointment to have paragard implanted and get off this bc as soon as possible!

Comment:
I'm 46 and previously taking Lutera. I changed Dr's and wanted a pill that had both estrogen and progrestin. I've been on this for three weeks. My first period lasted 10 days, I have gained 5 pounds, I had horrible cramping, my heart has been racing for two days now, I have been tired, have had bad dreams (when I don't normally remember dreaming) and my moods have been scary. I& ... Show Full Comment
