Junel Fe 1/20 birth control pill reviews

2 reviews

Junel Fe 1/20 birth control pills contain a low dose of estrogen alongside an androgenic progestin. It's a safe place to start with birth control due to a low blood clot risk but the low oestrogen may mean some spotting. It comes in packs of 28 tablets with 21 containing hormones and the remaining 7 placebo pills containing a boost of iron. You may have a withdrawal bleed during the placebo pill week.

All things considered, I’ve experienced minimal negative side effects while on Junel Fe 1/20. It does seem to have affected my mood and sex drive somewhat, so that’s worth considering.

Junel was great for the first 6 yrs on it. After that, the side effects started snowballing. Gained 10lbs, dryness, and my sex drive vanished to the point I became borderline asexual which ruined my relationship and contributed to our breakup. It also made me angrier. I didn't realize it was the cause of these things and stayed on another 5 yrs until it triggered weekly/biweekly migraines when I used to have 1 or 2 a year. When I came off, the migraines stopped. However, my body had become so dependent on Junel it destroyed my body's ability to regulate my hormones. Hormonal pills cut off your brain and reproductive system's connection so my brain didn't know how to do it's job anymore and I struggled very badly and almost went to the hospital. I regret ever staying on for so long. I would not stay on any hormonal method more than 5 years in the future. My libido also has not come back after 9 months.
