I have miserable side effect from this pill and have tried to wait it out now for 9 months... Weight gain, Stomach cramps, irregular periods, decreased sexual desire and painful sex due to lack of lubrication. I am going to have to switch to another method.

Now that I am past the spotting, I am happy ( just need to lose this extra weigh ... Show Full Comment

Experienced several side effects - significant weight gain (I eat healthy and work out 6 days/week), acne (cleared up for a while, then got much worse), my leg hair started growing at 2 or 3 times the rate it previously grew (weird), and worst of all, I have NO sexual desire WHATSOEVER. I thought it would all get better, but it's only gotten worse. I hate it and have an appointment with my d ... Show Full Comment
