For Birth Control “I’ve been on this birth control for over six years. I’ve had zero unplanned pregnancies and zero negative side effects. Love it!”

For Birth Control “Would put zero if I could. This is the worst birth control experience I have ever had!!! My mood swings were out of control and I experiences anxiety that turned into a really awful depression that effected my personal relationships. I don’t have a history of breaking out and started to notice my face become oily and breakouts appearing soon after I started the pack. Do NOT take this especially when there are so many other birth controls!!”

For Birth Control “Been on the pill for about 9 months. Only the first month had side effects. Since then, my mental health has finally stabilized. I have had severely unstable moods since I was 9. I also had premenstural dysphoric disorder and extreme cramping. Since taking the pill, my whole life has improved and I’m able to accomplish things such as going to a regular school full time. Now my period only lasts 3 days, and my sex drive is still there :).”

For Birth Control “My new doctor put me on this birth control to try to ease my ovarian pain and severe cramping. After only a week of taking it my skin became extremely oily, when I normally have dry skin, and my skin began to break out. It made me bleed non-stop and didn’t help with any of my PMS symptoms, if anything it made them worse. I’ve tried several other birth controls and this might be the worst one.”

For Birth Control “Just thought I’d add another review for this pill. I’m on week 6 of microgestin and it seems to be working fine. I haven’t had any extreme side effects so far. I was pretty moody a couple weeks ago, experienced some light bleeding for a couple of days, and my face has broken out- but not too badly. Overall it seems to be working just fine and the side effects are manageable. My period is usually very regular and I haven’t gotten it yet since starting the pill- but then again, my periods are always very light and only last about 3 days anyway.”

For Birth Control “Severe acne, low sex drive, vaginal dryness, extreme nausea and vomiting at the start of each pack, turned me into a raging psycho most of the time (literally felt like a different person on this pill, it was amazing getting off this and feeling like a cloud of anger and anxiety had been lifted off my shoulders).But the real kicker was when I started experiencing random shooting pain on my right front thigh, followed by right leg numbness. Fast forward a few more weeks and both legs started going numb and I got shooting pain that would travel up to my chest and arms. Doctors couldn’t determine what was going on exactly (my BP was normal) but advised me to get off the pill, which I gladly did. Craziest BC experience of my life by far”
