I have been on this pill for 3 months now. The first 2 weeks were a huge adjustment, I had a constant headache and the dizziness ended up getting to the point where I couldn't even drive without fear of passing out.

Iv been using Junel for over a year now, the first 13 months went by with complete satisfaction but then I took 2 months off and just went back on.. I am dizzy and nauseous with no appetite. Super annoying but Junel makes me gain weight and I cant wait to get my boobs back! (I lost a full cup size when I stopped taking it for 2 months)
