 1  To assist with regulating periods First I had awful headaches, mood swings, and bloating and the occasional spotting. Month got worse..heavy bleeding for THREE weeks. I even read increasing dosage would slow or stop it. Doc did not want to increase so coming off of pill. :-( F 36 70 days

 2  Pregnancy prevention Have been spotting for a few days now, enough to warrant wearing a pantiliner. Was given this generic since my usual Microgestin / Junel / Blisovi / Aurovela were all on back order. Have no idea why this generic gave me this side effect. F 21 14 days

 3  Contraceptive Before starting this pill I was doing super well and had a handle of my depression. After starting this I've been super tired, I bled for two weeks, I had suicidal thoughts and I'm just overall easy to anger. I just started spotting so I'm hoping I don't get my period for 2 weeks again. But so far I'm not pregnant. I'm going to try for a few more months. F 21 60 days

 2  Acne, contraceptive I have been taking birth control for 3 years now, and this one was been the worst I have experienced. I was on Junel Fe for more that 2years, then the pandemic resulted in backorders so I had to switch to Microgestin a few months ago. When Microgestin was back ordered, I was given this generic BC by Mylan. It has heightened my anxiety, which is something I didn't struggle with before to this degree. I feel nauseous and shaky when I take this medication. I want to go back to Microgestin because that is the one I found worked better for me. I do not recommend this BC by Mylan. Try Microgestin or Junel FE if you can. F 20 8 days
1/0.002 1X D
 1  Peri menopause After 6 days on the pill, I'm severely depressed, retaining water like crazy, nauseous and I have acne! Overall, I feel absolutely awful. I was wondering if I needed to commit to a time frame and side effects would diminish, but I think I'm just going to stop. F 42 7 days

 3  Regulate period Mood swings, depression, exhaustion, weight gain? I been taking this pill on and off for about a year. Due to the pandemic it was a little difficult to get my prescription refilled I was off it for about 2 weeks. When I got on it I was experiencing severe mood swings and wanted to cry almost everyday. My appetite has gone up but I've also started working out more, however while being on this pill I have been the heaviest I've ever been. It's my second week back on it and I'm still a little sensitive but mood is improving. I think I just have to be more consistent. I'm going to monitor my weight/ appetite and if I continue noticing an increase I may switch. As long as I've taken this I don't remember having severe side effects. This is the worst I've felt but am hopeful it was a hormonal imbalance due to the fluctuation in taking it. I would like to know if anyone has gained a lot of weight using this, please let me know. F 26 13 days
