CYCLAFEM 1/35: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Birth Control “I’ve used Cyclamen continuously nearing on two years. In the very beginning there was spotting and irregularity for a couple months, but given time, everything evens out. Due to skipping the inactive week, I never ever have a period or bleeding (so nice!), and if anything, my face has gotten clearer. I have gained a little weight, especially in my chest area, but I also like to eat with a sedentary lifestyle – so that could be a big contributing factor to the few extra lbs.”

For Birth Control “I started this pill two weeks ago. I was having bleeding and spotting problems, so they told me this would help. It stopped the bleeding and spotting. As soon as I started taking it, my face broke out. These pimples are massive! Hybrids! I was hoping I was just adjusting to the hormone so hopefully it will stop. I haven’t used it as a contraceptive Because my doctor recommend I wait an entire month! She said two weeks is standard but wait 4 weeks to be safe? I also experience nausea at night. I wake up out of my sleep because I’m so dizzy and nauseous. Breasts are extremely tender. Maybe it’s ovulation”

For Birth Control “I started taking Cyclafem on day 1 of my cycle about a month ago. Almost a whole month later, I’m still bleeding. I gained 7 pounds, and my boobs got bigger, which I expected, but I’ve been bleeding for over 20 days, I had a migraine experience that led me throw up breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and waves of cramps that would come and go. My doctor switched me to Loestrin 24 and have me meds to stop the bleeding. We’ll see how well this goes.”

For Birth Control “So far good, I just hate when I get to the second row I experience severe migraines… I have gained a little weight only a few pounds. Periods are light with a little cramp here and there but besides that it’s very effective, been on it for 6 months with unprotected sex and haven’t got pregnant yet.”

For Birth Control “I was on Cyclafem for about three years and started having horrible cramps outside of the week of my period. It also made me extremely tired and gain weight. I just switched and I am feeling better so hopefully it stays like this.”

For Birth Control “I’ve just completed my first 3 months and it’s great so far. My doctor put me on this to regulate my horrendous periods and start me on birth control. She had put my sister on it for the same reasons. Neither of us has experienced any major side effects. The only difference I’ve noticed is that my breast are slightly more tender when my cycle is about to start but I’ll rather deal with that than the heavy flow and cramps that had me bedridden for a whole week.”
