I've had alot of trouble with the pill and I also wish that someone had told me (namely my Dr.) that the pill could make you loose your mind. I have switched around ALOT but this pill is good for me in all ways except that I have low sex drive. My breast did not grow as has been reported by several others on here (bummer!). It seems to keep me in an even mood. Over all I think it's the best so far...

I only stayed on this pill for 2 weeks, I got on it because I did not have a period at all. It made me slightly nauseous and fatigued also I got a yeast infection from it the first two weeks. It did not do anything for my acne but also did not make it worse. It was not horrible but I switched and I am starting Enpresse tonight. Please keep in mind everyone responds to different doses of hormones differently and my doctor told me birth control is trial and error.

This birth control made my breasts grow about two cup sizes which would have been fine, except that I'm already a DD and it got to the point where I was having back pain. I also became moodier, I felt emotional like I was PMSing everyday. I am going to switch to a pill with lower progesetin like Alesse because of these side effects. On the plus side, my skin was perfect, so I can see this pill working well for other women.

I have PCOS and I had extreme bleeding and huge clots during my period. I was in alot of pain and I had no energy. My doctor put me on Ortho-Cept because the birth control she originally put me on didn't help, so this did and it made it so I wasn't bleeding and in pain. I'm only doing a month or 2 of this birth control but you know what..I'm happy on it.

Instantly grew a cup size, my skin wasn't changed, and periods were regular. The only terrible side effect was mood swings. I pushed everyone I loved away, I was being treated for depression. I was misserable until I stopped taking the pill and instantly went back to my normal self. I wish someone would have warned me that birth control could have such an effect! My boobs shrank back to normal 2 days after I stopped taking it. Might work differently for someone else.
