 5  PPMD, painful periods, depression N/A This pill has been wonderful. I used to dread my periods, not anymore. I no longer have painful cramps. I used to get severely depressed, super hungry, and couldn't sleep two weeks before my period. All of these symptoms have been reduced to maybe three days now. I know meds work differently for everyone. I've had a very positive experience with these pills. I feel like they saved my life! 38 2 years

 1  Yes I had really bad lower abdominal cramps, heavy bleeding & A LOT of clots. My period also has lasted a lot longer. I got this from a pharmacy and Junel was supposed to be the same as Microgestin 1/20. It was definitely not! I went back to the place where I got Microgestin and after a day of taking it, I already feel better after weeks feeling like crap. F 32 4 weeks

 3  Birth control, hormonal fluctuation I've was on junel about 3 years ago and was satisfied with it completely. I went off it and got horrible hormonal acne and I'm 28, eat organic, non GMO, etc! My hormone levels were spiking and I had too much testosterone in me. My doctor put me back on junel and upped my dose to higher estrogen and progestin to see if it helps. My boobs have become plumper and tender, I am extremely bloated to where my pants barely button and my scale says I've gained about 5 pounds in a month. I'm gonna give it another 2 months because I've heard these symptoms lessen. Also, my sex drive has not dipped, if anything, it's increased. I was depressed for the first week and a half but now I feel great. I put somewhat satisfied because I happy about everything so far, just angry about he bloating. F 28 1 days

 2  Birth Control Breakthrough Bleeding. Yeast infections. Bacterial Vaginitis. Depression. Problems with Contact Lenses. When I first started Junel, I had mild breakthrough bleeding. I got over that in about three months. Everything went well until about six months ago. I started feeling depressed all the time, just a meh kind of feeling. Then the yeast infections and BV started, alternating every few weeks. I've also had really bad issues with my contacts drying out. I'm thinking of going off the pill after this month to see if it clears everything up. F 20 2 years

 1  Birth Control I would took this birth control for 3 months and had to stop. I went to the emergency room for the first time in my life because of it. I had severe pain and after several tests and a few ours of agonizing pain later they came to me and told me "we need to rush you into surgery" I was diagnosed with a severe case of gallstones. I had to get my gallbladder removed. I have tried to sue over it but every lawyer I talk to says there has to be a group case of this to be able to sue the company but I will not stop and I want all of you to no DONT TAKE IT!! I hope no one else goes through what I did. F 22 3 months

 3  Prevent Cysts that occur with ovula The first 2-3 weeks of taking this pill were hell. I was irritable, angry, no sex drive, my breasts went up a cup size and were tender all the time, and other symptoms such as hemorroids and heartburn (which I'm not sure is related) After one month of taking this pill, these symptoms went away completely. I got my libido back, my breasts are back to normal (boo) and i feel normal again. I guess you have to give this pill a month for your body to adjust. Any longer than a month I would've switched to another pill. F 35 2 months
