FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: PREVIFEM

For Birth Control “my pharmacist changed my birth control from tri-sprintec to this and told me it was the same thing. I do not like this birth control at all the first month I was on it broke me out so much, the second month I bled for 15 days straight and the third month it made my mood TERRIBLE. The only reason I’m still on it because they gave me a 3 month supply. After I finish this pack I will be changing back to tri-sprintec”

For Abnormal Uterine Bleeding “I took previfem from August ‘16-October ‘17 for heavy periods and bad cramping. The first month it made me break out like crazy on my forehead, but that cleared up rather quickly into the second month. It made my periods much lighter and eliminated my cramping all together. By the summer of 2017, I had a major shift in my lifestyle. I was no longer in college, where I was on the Crew team for three years, and a new job had started up. With the shift in my lifestyle, my periods became incredibly heavy. Still no cramping, but I was bleeding through super plus tampons after 6 hours. I know it was due to the stressors in my life and my lack of exercise, but my doctor and I have decided to switch over that is better equipped for my lifestyle”

For Birth Control “I’m not sure about this birth control quite yet. I was on trinessa back in November or so and it worked fantastic for me, cleared up my acne, no nausea or any other side affects. Then I got really sick and had to stop taking the pill for a month or two, and when I tried to get back on it I had continuous discharge for over 5 months so I decided to switch to the shot but didn’t like it, so here I am. When I started I felt nauseous all the time, my boobs hurt, stomach pains and cramps, and worst of all my acne. I never used to get cystic acne, but now I get it all over my mouth, chin, forehead, and under my nose, I hate it I keep reading reviews, and it’s freaking me out. I’m not sure if I should continue taking this or not for 2 or 3 month”

For Abnormal Uterine Bleeding “I am not sure how I feel about this birth control yet. The first month I started, my withdrawal bleed came the 4th day of my placebo pills. The second month, was about the same. Every month I have experienced some sort of breakthrough bleeding. By my third month I started spotting about 5 days before my placebo pills and bled all the way through my placebo week. I am now in my 4th pack and I started spotting 3 days before my placebo pack and just took my 2nd placebo pill today, no real withdrawal bleed yet. This is the only form of contraception I am using. Has anyone else experienced this and should I be worried? I feel like my withdrawal bleed should start anytime because I am having some cramping.”

For Birth Control “First birth control pill I have ever taken and it’s been 2 weeks, so far so good. I haven’t noticed too many side effects, besides soreness/some growth in the breasts. No intense cravings, no mood swings, no nausea, no weight gain and no depression. I am a little more sensitive than before but that’s about it.”

For Abnormal Uterine Bleeding “I bled for 7 weeks out of 2.5 months on Previfem. I also gained 7 pounds. I’d lose half of it during the placebo week, but it came back when I started the active pills again. I threw out my 3rd pack halfway through the active pills. It’s been 4 days, and I’m 0.3 pounds short of my old, happy weight. Granted, it was probably just water weight, but my self esteem really is affected by my weight.”
