This pill is effective as far as not getting pregnant (that's the only positive). My mood has downshifted severely to the point where I am NEVER happy and I have never suffered from depression until now. I feel like I'm pms-ing all month long all of the time. My period has become extremely sporadic where it can occur twice in one month and then maybe not come for three months. I have the w ... Show Full Comment

This birth control has made me extremely emotional, to the point of being crazy. It's made me think and feel certain ways that I know I would never feel pre-birth control self. It does prevent pregnancy and I haven't gained any weight; however the affect it's having on my emotions and behaviors are unbearable. Stopping this pill tomorrow because it's not worth the emotional strug ... Show Full Comment

And I took three packs straight not knowing you had to skip a week to have your period, after around six months I've found a balance. It has stopped my sex drive for a while, but my body seems to have adjusted and being the young hormonal Adole ... Show Full Comment

I'm a 19 year old female, and I've been using this birth control for about 4 or 5 months now. I never pay attention to changes in my body from my birth control, until my period didn't show up this month. I see a lot of people miss periods while on Junel so, I would say this birth control works for preventing pregnancy, but I have NO sex drive. I don't think there's a birth con ... Show Full Comment

This medication definitely stops you from getting pregnant, so I mean that's a good thing. Other than that, this pill is THE DEVIL!!!! It has literally made me a crazy person. I have uncontrollable mood swings. I lash out on my boyfriend over nothing. I have absolutely NO sex drive. I feel like I could live without it. I feel bloated, tired, bipolar, etc. I wouldn't recommend this pill to ... Show Full Comment
