This is the first birth control I have ever taken and I've been on it for 9 months now and I like it a lot. The first couple of months my periods were inconsistent but after that they were consistent and very light. I would get cramps the first day of my period and I would get bloated the day before I started but I would get bad cramps and bloat before I started taking birth control and the bi ...

I've taken birth control for the past 9 years, and I've been on this medication for about a year and have noticed many side effects but never bothered to figure out what was causing it until recently. I have gained roughly 15 pounds, even going to the gym everyday didn't make a difference, no change in diet or anything. Its given me horrible acne, and on top of everything else my very ...

I moved to a new city and I needed low cost birth control. I was prescribed this because it was supposed to be similar to my previous Rx (Loestrin 24 Fe). It wasn't even close. I have been taking it for a year - giving my body plenty of time to adjust to it. It effectively kept me from getting pregnant, but I gained over 20lbs (without any major changes to my diet/exercise routine), had zero l ... Show Full Comment

This was my first birth control I've ever taken. Yes all birth controls make you feel a little nausea at first but that's normal. I really liked this product. I got off for a while and the doctor put me on 1/20 hated it. My boobs hurt like crazy, I wanted to cry all.the.time. Just wasn't for me. Glad to be back on the 1.5/30. First week so far so I'll keep on the update :) but from ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Started this pill after being off the pill altogether for a few years (was on Ovcon prior to that). Ovcon had since been discontinued, so Dr. put me on this because I stressed that I did not want to gain weight. Over the course of the year, I gained close to 15 lbs (a large amount for someone who is 5'5") and developed cellulite all over my thighs which I have never had before. My diet ... Show Full Comment
