Comment:
Junel Fe was my first experience with birth control and I started taking it a few months before I got married. It worked very well, I was slightly moody for a while (which may have just been stress from planning a wedding), and I gained a few pounds, but I'd also switched from a highly active job to a desk job at the same time, so it was expected. I wish I was still taking it, but I had what a ... Show Full Comment
