 2  Heavy bleeding during periods Mood swings, depressed, very low sex drive, my husband noticed that I was changing to. Didn't realize it until I noticed that I really didn't want my husband to touch me, and we were never like that. Then I read the reviews I was in shock. I'm not taking one more pill. My husband agrees. F 48 2 years

 1  ovarian cyst control Extreme anxiety, depression, extreme mood swings, low libedo. After i started taking this i noticed that i started getting depressed. The depression turned into having mild anxiety attacks around the placebo week. I thought i would give it a few months. The anxiety lessoned but the mood swswings are horrific. I have stopped taking them because i feel it has changed my attitude and i do not like the person i have become. I am not myself on these pills. Id much rather deal with the pain from a cyst bursting than this emotional roller coaster. F 29 8 months

 1  Birth control These pills caused a hormone embalance in me. I gained about 15 lbs in 2 months, had extreme fluid retention, no sex drive, mood swings, migraines, and caused my breasts to sag. I do not recommend these pills as the side effects are not worth it. If I wanted that much stress I would have had a kid! F 29 4 months

 2  birth control weight gain, decreased sex drive, lethargic My periods are extremely light compared to when I was on Ortho-cept. They are so light that it concerns me.

 1  prevention of pregnancy SEVERE moodiness The decision to stop taking this pill came when I realized that even I didn't like the "new" me. Not saying that it is the same in everyone, but this pill gave me severe mood swings and I snapped at the least little thing. I am going back to Nordette 28. F 32 11 months

 5  birth control, heavy periods, acne As long as I take the brand version of this pill (not the generic) I have no side effects after the first month or two. First two months I had some problems with mood swings but nothing else. I find that my sex drive is affected negatively from the generic version but I don't seem to have as much of a problem with the brand version. I also get some other undesirable side effects from the generic - mood problems especially. I've taken two different kinds of generic pills for this drug and while one was better than the other, I still don't do as well on them. This has been the best pill for me. I took it for about 3 years but then tried some others due to sex drive issues. I've tried Ovcon-35, Estrostep, OTC lo, and Yaz. I liked OTC lo A LOT and it was great for my sex drive, but it took my acne from mild to severe and I'm still trying to recover. I did not do well on any of the other pills. I went back to Lo/Ovral 3 months ago. It is a bit expensive for me because I will only take the brand name, but it's worth it. F 26 3.5 years

 3  birth control Severe mood swings and moodiness, laziness, extreme exhaustion constantly (no matter how much sleep is obtained), insomnia, acne, possible weight gain (I don't have a scale!). I was on Kariva (generic of Mircette), but due to depression and sever moodiness/mood swings I stopped taking it. I was then put on Lo/Ovral-28 (actually the generic, Lo-Ogestrel). Most of my issues had gone away before starting the Lo/Ovral but quickly came back from THIS pill. F 23 2 months

 2  prevention of pregnancy decreased sex drive, moodiness i had been taking orthotricyclen lo for about three years and it worked well for me but then i started to experience breakthrough bleeding and the doctor switched me over of lo/ovral. the breakthrough bleeding stopped, but then i noticed that my sex drive has seriously decreased since i started taking it. i also noticed that i had become very irritable along with an increased appetite. i have now been switched to another brand and i hope it works!
