HORRIBLE! I was taking Levora and had been on it for over 10 years with absolutely no problems. My pharmacy switched me to Portia claiming it was because of my insurance. I have now been on Portia for 1 full year. I have had more periods, even when I am not supposed to. I have had several months of having 2 a month. I had experienced this when I was 19 and now I am 40. I have always been on a birt ... Show Full Comment

Reading these other reviews has been enlightening and encouraging. I suffer from depression, recently it’s been much worse than normal despite my efforts (supplements etc) and I have had mood swings, weight gain, no libido.

Had to switch to this from Levora that worked great. Even though Portia kept me from getting pregnant, I woke up every morning with cramps, nausea and by week 3 I had purpura show up on my legs. I had back pain and mood swings like crazy.

I took this birth control for a couple of months before I switched. It was awful. I experienced some mood swings but worst of all, I had cramping all month.
