I only took it for 3 days it gave me a fever and made me throw up like crazy so I stopped it cold turkey which was a mistake because then it messed up my regular cycle and I was constantly missing periods

It scared me because my periods would last maybe 4 hours. I was worried about it effecting my future fertility.

Omg could it do that? Should I not take it? I only got it for my periods.. I haven't been having sex or anything so I don't really need it cause that.

I couldn't tell you. But I'm not comfortable with anything that essentially makes my periods stop.

I hated it. I took it for 8 months... I still had periods but it made me gain like 30 pounds and gave me horrible headaches. I stopped taking and did NFP for a little less than a year before I got pregnant with our son (we only tried one month before I got pregnant).

Same happened to me basically. I didn't have my period the 3 years I was on it and I have been off now for almost 2 years and still don't get periods. Doctors suggest I get back on it to help :roll: I want to be off BC and regulate my body, fertility issues scare me.

It was OK. I liked the shortened periods. I went from 8 days of bleeding to like, two light days. the bummer was that it did make me a bit moodier than normal.



I'd maybe still take it, but I'm almost 35 and apparently that's when the real side effects kick in, so it's vasectomy time for us.

It made me moody, cold sweats, nauseated and KILLED my sex drive,. I came off of it after 4 months.

I took it to regulate my cycle after a chemical pregnancy messed it up. I was supposed to take it for two months, but came off of it halfway through my second pack because of the spotting/bleeding. I literally bled every single day I was on it. I HATED it, and will never take it again.
