 3  Heavy periods, endometriosis, anemi Mood stabilized, lighter periods followed by heavy periods. Breast tenderness, decreased libido, increased urination. I use this to control heavy periods and treat anemia. I have an ovarian cyst and uterine fibroid. I'm doubtful this one helps with heavy periods in the long run and will switch to something else.

 2  for severe cystic acne Severe depression, constant migraines, nausea, fatigue, anxiety, chest pains, dizziness, short-term memory loss, palpitations, dry eyes. Usually I donít have serious problems with most generics of Mircette. Viorele has the worst side effects in a birth control pill I've ever experienced. I wasn't able to function. On the positive note, it kept my skin clear and my pores tight. My husband said I look younger and less tired. Usually I have red eyes from birth control pill use but this did not make my eyes red, although it did made them dry. I wasnít able to wear my contacts for a long time. F 37 10 days

VIORELE  (DESOGESTREL; 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)
