Birth Control Consumer Reviews


UPDATE: Pfizer just recalled Lo/Ovral and its generic equivalent (as of Feb. 3, 2012). Apparently they put the placebos in with the main pills, causing women who take 3 placebo pills in a row to potentially become pregnant.
Birth control pills vary and so do birth control side effects. Some pills cause irregular bleeding, weight gain, dizziness, shortness of breath among many other side effects.
 
As much as birth control pills vary, so do the individual experiences of women. While one type of birth control may do wonders for one woman, it may cause another to be sick.
 
If your doctor has prescribed a pill for you, it is probably the best one. However, it may be a good idea to check out what side effects other women have on the same pill.

Sometimes a generic version of a pill may even cause different side effects than the brand name. Sometimes you may be taking a pill for months with no problems but the manufacturer makes a small change and now you are having crazy side effects!

Having some strange side effects from birth control pills?

Many women have side effects that they were not anticipating when they starting taking birth control pills.

Are you having irregular bleeding?

Are you dizzy from birth control?
