 1  Birth control Nausea and bloating after a couple hours of taking it, fatigue, moodiness / irritable, and lowered libido. I used depo before and never experienced symptoms like these. F 21 11 days
N/A 1X D
 1  Endometriosis Extreme nausea, I take pepto-bismol before i take my pill everyday and I eat while taking my pill, hoping it would lessen my nausea. I always tend to feel sick 5 hours after taking my pill to where I canít eat and I feel drained. I also experience random cramps throughout the day. F 18 14 days
 3  Help with periods Break through bleeding F 46 18 days
 3  Birth control/ ovarian cysts It makes me vomit A LOT if I take it at the same time of day as any of my other medications. However, since I rearranged my medication schedule and moved all of my other meds to the evening, it's been okay. However, the first day back on the normal pill after the period week of inert pills I always feel sick. I don't always throw up, but I feel nauseous all day. My epilepsy medication was making my old birth control metabolize too quickly, which invalidated its actions against my ovarian cyst development. I was switched to this one so that they would stop coming back, and it actually did the trick. As much as I hate being nauseous and throwing up, I'd take that any day over more ruptured cysts. F 19 4 months
.25 MG 1X D
 4  Birth control, acne Slight nausea during the first half of the 1st week, small increase in hair growth, tender breasts Before I was on Tri-Previfem, (the kind with different mg amounts per week) for 6 months and I had breakthrough spotting for the entire time and it had also eliminated my libido/sex drive to absolute nothing. That is why I switched to Previfem full doseage for every week, and it has so far resolved these issues F 21 4 weeks
.25 mg 1X D
 1  Birth control, period regulation I've had nausea on and off all day, everyday since about the second day I started taking this. Was on Sprintec for a few years and never had a problem. This medication is suppose to be the same as Sprintec just under a different name. I don't know if I'm allergic to the buffer or what but I'm in misery. I will be stopping this tomorrow. I cannot take another day of this. It's not worth waiting to see if the nausea will subside. F 23 6 days

PREVIFEM  (ETHINYL ESTRADIOL; NORGESTIMATE):  This combination hormone medication is used to prevent pregnancy. It contains 2 hormones: a progestin and an estrogen. 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)
