While taking this pill I have a great number of headaches since taking it. I also find myself going into depression. Thinking about a lot of negativities things. I also don't have a sex drive. The plus side about taking this pill, I have clearer skin.

I was excited about the low dose option for this birth control, but I was disappointed. I had frequent, long periods in the middle of packs and I have developed severe hormonal acne. I did not feel that my libido increased enough to make the low dose worth it.

After getting the IUD removed, I decided to go on Lolo and it was 1 year of misery! At first, it was nice not having a period and my breasts becoming enlarged, but with those 2 positives came a lot of negatives for this birth control. I suffered from depression (my thoughts would race all day and night, sometimes I would just cry out of no where and I couldn't understand why I was crying or upset), anxiety got 10x worse than what it was, I was always on edge and very negative towards everything, I lost my drive to do anything, headaches almost everyday to the point I was sick to my stomach. I decided a year later to take myself off of them. I have only been off them a few days now so I can't say how I will feel within the next few weeks | months.

It was fine at first, but then 3 weeks in I started feeling symptoms of depression. I felt sad and like I wanted to cry all of the time, which was unusual. It was hard for me to stay motivated, keep up with basic hygiene and getting out of bed in the morning. I stopped taking this pill and the symptoms completely went away for me! I ended up switching to a Mirena IUD and it was a great decision!

it’s fine, I got back in it after being on a higher hormonal dosage then going off — and it’s definitely helped my acne. But I do feel really bloated and eh
