 4  prev pregnancy+regulate cycle slightly increased hair loss, low libido, vaginal dryness. I love this medicine! I had bad nausea, headaches, and even vomiting with another hormone BC. This one has given me no severe side effects! I do notice a slight increase in hair loss, but it's not significant. I have almost zero sex drive though, and when I had sex for the first time in 3 months I was extremely dry (combo of low libido causing dryness and this drug directly affecting it) F 20 8 months

 2  Pregnancy prevention Hair falling out, increased anxiety, bouts of severe anger, mood swings My hair has been falling out like crazy for the past two months. I mean globs of my hair are hitting my feet in the shower when I wash my hair, it's constantly on my clothes, furniture, car floor ect. I had thought it was because of stress (my dog died and I went thru a breakup all within two months). However, after finally reading about the side effects of this drug I found out “hair falling out of scalp” is a side effect. My gyneo told me this was the generic for lo loestrin fe which I never had an issue with. I've also been extremely anxious within this past four months and I had never suspected it to be this Junel fe, but again after reading reviews it looks like other people are experiencing this as well. I already suffer from generalized anxiety and I take adderall 45mg daily so I thought it was prob the adderall. I've never been an angry person EVER, however I have a severe temper now! The littlest things will make me go thru the roof, I get overstimulated very easily, and I'm verbally and physically destructive. I would prob just start taking lo loestrin again if it wasn't $300.

 1  regulate period cycle Became severely anxious and extremely moody. I did not even realize how badly this was affecting me until I finally stopped taking it. It was like magic and I felt like a brand new person. I absoloutely do not recommend this medication - only good thing about it is my periods became lighter and shorter. F 22 2 years

 5  painful periods, prevent pregnancy little nausea at first but that went away after a couple months. I used to have very very painful periods and I would have cramps for at least 3 weeks out of the month. Sore breasts for usually at least 2-3 weeks. Bleeding was also very very heavy and terrible. After taking junel all of that has stopped and now I only get cramps a few days before and during my period and they are very manageable. It also helped with my acne. F 17 4 months

 1  Prevent pregnancy I've been having severe anxiety since I started taking this BC. At first I thought my anxiety and increase mood swings were related to stress due to COVID-19 since I'm an essential personnel however I'm now convinced it's due to this BC. I'm normally very bubbly and full of energy however I've found myself depressed, anxious, increased headaches, irritable, moody, decreased energy, sleeping problem, This should be taken off the market with as many bad reviews as it has. I will be discontinuing effective tomorrow... and will probably remain off for a while F 27 0 weeks

 5  Endometriosis Less cravings, less hungry , less sleep. I love this bc. I was on junel fe before this dosage and then I started bleeding through the lower dose, typical endo. I have struggled to lose weight on almost all bc but this one I seem to be able to control my cravings and food intake. Other BC's I was always hungry and couldn't control my intake now I've lost 10 pounds and sleep way less, I'm bot sure to be annoyed or okay with it s iij nce most of the time I really struggled with my fatigue and exhaustion. I still have endo pain unfortunately but I recommend this bc. It's easier than most and less side effects in my opinion. The trick tho is definitely to. And make sure you are drinking the right amount of water if I don't that's when my bc effects my moods and all.. 26 28 days

 2  Regulate period The first 2 years I was on Junel were great. Then I started to have some vaginal dryness. Didn't know how bad it was until I went for a gyno visit and the exam was extremely uncomfortable due to how dry I was down there. I've been having on and off yeast infections since February 2020 and I've had enough of it. I also notice that my mood swings are rough the week before. This did help regulate my periods and made them lighter. I had very heavy periods and severe cramps before taking. I'm going to go off of it completely for now to see if I can reset my system and get back to normal levels before exploring a different BC option. F 27 4 years

 3  Preventing pregnancy I get really really bad cramps on the first two days of my period which is not normal for me, my period used to last five days now it last three or four. I do get really bad tender breast even when Im not close to my period I still dont know if thats normal to anyone else whos taking this. Is it normal for my breasts to be tender when Im not close to my period? Is this a normal side effect F 18 4 weeks

 3  Stop bleeding from ovarian cyst Bad acne on my back, very stable mood, thinning hair, and my bleeding and period completely stopped the entire time I was on this. Also helped me stay thin. Wish there was an in between formula of 1/25. I think the 1.5 of the norethindone is too much for me but I dont want to go as low as 20mcg of the estradiol. Too bad. F 23 1 years

 5  Irregular Periods Cramping and or diarrhea. Heavy clotting in the beginning, almost my entire cycle but has now lightened dramatically. I have always suffered from irregular periods. Always! I have tried everything you can think of and nothing had ever worked. When I started this it immediately regulated my cycle. I did suffer from heavy clotting in the beginning but it has since subsided. I would rather deal with that for a couple of days then have my period for weeks at a time all the time. I'm thankful I found something that works for me. I wish I had found this earlier. I would definitely recommend this from my experiences. F 42 6 months

 3  Stop prolong bleeding & pregnancy I got prescribed Junel Fe 1.5/30 to stop my prolong bleeding from the depo shot that I only took one dose of. I began bleeding February 4th up until April 22. My doctor had me take two pills a day for a week to stop the bleeding which it did. And from then I took one pill a day. I got my period again may 2 and bled until May 8th and have been spotting on and off, then I got my period again may 16th... I thought that this pill was supposed to make your periods lighter and shorter. Cramping isnt horrible. I dont breakout I never do. Doesnt mess with my mood or anything. It just sucks because my sex life has been ruined from the shot and i thought that this pill would make the whole bleeding stop. Ive only been on it for a month so Ill give it some time... F 19 1 months
