FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: SAFYRAL

User Comments:


For Birth Control “There are 4 pills left in the pack and all I can say is I am happy I have finally found the pill that works for me. I’ve tried a few different birth controls but they all made me bleed for months on end. had the Depo shot in my teens, came off of it I had to go to the hospital. Tried it again at 25 years old: had 1 shot and bled for legit 5 months straight. I requested a low lose pill. Took lo loestrin fe for 1 month and that made me VERY on edge, angry, depressed (I’m usually happy). Told my doctor I was “done trying birth control!”, but she persisted I try something else. She identified progesterone was too much for my system and thus came SAFYRAL. I legit have zero side effects. Best decision ever. Going to get my new pack tonite!”

For Birth Control “This is the ONLY birth control pill that’s been effective for me; I tried around 4 other pills before I discovered this one. No breakthrough bleeding (one of the biggest problems I had with the other pills) and it’s made my periods so much lighter (I used to bleed through tampons and pads and now my period is way lighter). I haven’t gotten pregnant so I guess it’s also doing what it’s supposed to do, lol. Another bonus: I used to get painful cystic acne on my chin whenever it was my time of the month, and since beginning this pill I haven’t had to deal with any acne whatsoever! The only problem I have with it is that I cry a bit more than I used to, but I don’t really mind.”

For Birth Control “I switched to safyral two months ago after losing my insurance and needing free samples to carry me until my new job provided me with coverage. I have been on ocella and Yasmin, depending on which was free at the time of refill, since I was 15 (now 26) and have had a great experience. My periods were always regular, minimal breakthrough bleeding (only occurring when I missed a pill or 2), no cramps, 3-4 day periods with very light bleeding. Since switching to safryl I experience consistent breakthrough bleeding. Three to four days before I expect my period I get nauseous, dizzy/faint, and get HORRIBLE cramps. I’m really looking forward to going back to ocella. This is not similar to ocella and Yasmin as I was told previously.”

For Birth Control “I started this pill about a year ago. I was on a couple other birth control pills before. This pill made me gain a bunch of weight, frequent breast pain, and horrible cramps. My emotions are always out of control. I eat healthy and workout at least three days a week and shouldn’t be gaining all of this weight. The bloating when on my period has gotten dramatically worse. I would recommend not taking this pill. I am in the process of getting a different pill.”

For Birth Control “so I am on the sugar pills of my third month on this birth control and I have finally concluded, I am not going crazy, its the pills.The first month was great, I lost about 5-6 pounds, felt wonderful and no babies! the second month was just as good until I got to 2 days before the sugar pills. I began getting terrible cramps (not normal for me) and even worse back aches (normal but not this severe) I was crying uncontrollably over my ‘friend’ who hadn’t texted me that day and went through at least 3 uncontrollable rage spells, and got so exhausted, I couldn’t keep my eyes open (I go through insomnia, one bonus about this pill is that I got A LOT of sleep) this month its worse, I can’t even speak to my Dr. without wanting to scream.”
