 2  Acne, perimenopause Acne, headaches, loss of appetite, anxiety I was taking Volnea. I only lasted 7 weeks, taking if continuously to skip periods. Within the sixth week my face started exploding with pimples and many clogged pores. I even use tretinoin and other skincare but it was not enough to prevent them. I have acne in places I never break out. It also increased my anxiety. F 44 7 weeks

 1  Pregnancy Prevention & Ovarian Cyst EXTREME FATIGUE, lethargic, living in a fog, mild depression, moodiness, hair loss, acne, heart palpitations, COMPLETE LOSS OF LIBADO,headaches, break through bleeding It took me a year to realize ALL of these side effects were from Mircette. Initially, I was put on this to help with ovarian cysts that would occasionally flair up and pregnancy prevention. Well, it sure did its job. Short periods, minimal cramping, lighter flow but NO INTEREST IN SEX WITH MY HUSBAND WHAT SO EVER. Thank god he's a loving a patient man. The pure exhaustion and host of other side effects are not worth the regulated periods. My husband recently got a vasectomy. I have stopped these horrible pills and will tough out the cyst pain should they return. This drug should NOT be on the market or doctors should explain ALL the side effects to poor unsuspecting women before prescribing so they know what to look for. STOP taking this IMMEDIATELY if you're experiencing any of the above side effects. It's not worth it!! I can't wait to feel like "ME" again! F 29 1 years

I saw my family dr, he is putting me on some meds to calm my nerves for now. I am stopping the Azurette. I feel so sick, shaking, trembling, nauseous. F 44 6 days

 2  birth control Bad headaches and NO period which I'm ok with but would like to know y I'm not having one?! F 26 1 days
 5  Migraines, period complications People should specify if it's brand name Mircette or a generic brand because there IS a difference. Some medications I have to have brand name because generic does not work or I have reactions to.. so there is a difference. The filler or inactive ingredients can be completely different. With that said I suffer from debilitating migraines, fibroid tumors, severe menstrual issues. I am kept on pill continuously so I don't have a period and to control migraines. I've had reactions to a lot of pills. BRAND NAME MIRCETTE has little to no side effects for me and my migraines were so much better. Didn't feel moody/down and it didn't affect weight or skin like other pills. This has best low dose combination without having the androgenic effects like a lot of other pills and that is a wicked thing. I've tried about every pill, method over the years due to my issues and this has been best one. Everyone is different though. You really need to give it a couple months to know how it's working especially if you were on something before as it takes a while to get all of one med/pill/hormones out of your system and to adjust to another. Some side effects could be from overlapping or the drop of the one pill (hormones) getting out of your system so keep that in mind when starting a new pill.. give it time cause it could be the other pill still in your system or that it's leaving your system and your hormones are fluctuating.. also be cautious with certain generic brands. Read reviews on them! F 42 2 years
 1  Birth control Weight gain, edema in lower legs. Tender breasts with very full and heavy feeling. Brown spotting for over one month. 10 hours late taking an active pill, took it when i remembered, and bleeding started right away. Two weeks later breakthrough bleeding is still happening.

 1  Irregular bleeding I was started on this for irregular bleeding that couldn't be controlled through other methods. I've basically transformed into a different person. I'm moody all the time, I have lost my sex drive to the point that I'd rather punch my husband in the face as to have sex. My face is breaking out, I've gained about 6 pounds, and I sleep for hours. I can sleep for ten hours a night, wake up, and then take a three hour nap. I'm very short tempered. I've noticed some mild to moderate weight gain. I will be coming off of this medication ASAP. I feel like this was a last ditch effort from my GYN. It hasn't worked. F 32 3 months

 5  acne control, anxiety control Hormonal Migraines one day per month. With Mircette continuously on backorder, my PCAB Accredited compounding pharmacy is wondering if patients are interested in getting a compounded form. This should not cause the same side effects you experience in Kariva as it's a pure form that can be compounded free of allergens and unnecessary fillers. If interested, contact myself or visit our website at www.hdrx.com F 27 5 years

MIRCETTE  (DESOGESTREL; ETHINYL ESTRADIOL; ETHINYL ESTRADIOL):  This combination hormone medication is used to prevent pregnancy. It contains 2 hormones: a progestin (desogestrel) and an estrogen (ethinyl estradiol). It works mainly by preventing the release of an egg (ovulation) during your menstrual cycle. It also makes vaginal fluid thicker to help prevent sperm from reaching an egg (fertilization) and changes the lining of the uterus (womb) to prevent attachment of a fertilized egg. If a fertilized egg does not attach to the uterus, it passes out of the body. Besides preventing pregnancy, birth control pills may make your periods more regular, decrease blood loss and painful periods, decrease your risk of ovarian cysts, and also treat acne. Using this medication does not protect you or your partner against sexually transmitted diseases (such as HIV, gonorrhea, chlamydia).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
