Comment:
This birth control was given to me in a pharmacy as the generic version of my original prescription. At first I didn't mind because it was a lot cheaper, but I started noticing that I was extremely emotional. (I am NEVER EVER emotional) I cried pretty much twice a day, which is very abnormal for me.

Comment:
This was my first type of birth control I have used. It is very effective, and very easy to use. I have not had a period in several months. I am not sure if this is my body type or it is typical of the type but I have not read anyone else with the same issue.

Comment:
I was surprised to see so many people rated this drug with low satisfaction. I've been taking this drug for over a year and a half now, and I absolutely love it! I've experienced no weight gain, no problems with moodiness or depression, no nausea, and it even began making my incredibly irregular periods primarily regular (while also making them lighter). I wish more people were lucky enoug ... Show Full Comment
