User Comments:


For Birth Control “I have been on this meds due to my body not having the hormones to stop my period. Now I’m back on it after I quit it to have children. No other birth control is as good. Bad side effects, facial hair and my periods are heavy. Good side, not pregnant, mood is better, less menstrual cramps then on other pills.”

For Birth Control “If you start getting moody, stop taking this medication immediately. I was on this BCP for exactly 1 month and I developed a stroke (hospital categorized it as a seizure) where I couldn’t remember my name and had to redevelop my speech and writing. The day after the hospitalization I developed Mono from my weakened immune system and slept for 24 hours straight. Do not take BCP in general. .”

For Birth Control “Since I have been on it less than a month, my breasts are painfully tender as well as HUGE, I’m extremely moody and bitchy, weight gain/bloated not sure which, nausea, 0 sex drive, the only good side is I’m extremely project oriented on task.”

For Birth Control “I was put on Desogen after continuous bleeding on Ortho Tri Lo. My practitioner thought I needed higher hormones. Desogen stopped all the spotting but it killed my sex drive. Even when I did have any sexual desire I didn’t get the physical affects of arousal like lubrication. It made sex completely unfun even on the rare occasion that I wanted to do it at all. I gained weight while on it but I started it pretty young and I know weight gain is pretty common around that time.”

For Birth Control “I was on ortho Tri cyclen but stop due to stomach pain I switch over to this and notice I cry for any little thing. This pill has made me feel so emotional and I’m usually stronger than that. I had to discontinue.”

For Birth Control “I have been taking Desogen for almost a month and a half. I get dizzy, have severe headaches, cystic acne, extreme cramps, and the worst part of it all is my moods are awful. I get so angry and emotional at the drop of a hat. So I stopped taking it because I was tired of getting angry all the time and taking it out on my boyfriend. Luckily he’s very understanding. My moods and acne have now practically vanished once I stopped taking it.”
