Altavera birth control pill  

It has been incredibly effective with preventing pregnancy. As long as it is taken consistently. Weight gain and loss of sex drive started within the first 6 months of taking.

Apri birth control pill  

This birth control was prescribed to me for our IVF treatment for suppression. Mind you, I have no history of mental illness but a few days on this pill I felt crazy, severe depression, suicidal thoughts, and just felt like I had no will to live. Felt nauseas and just didn't want to get out of bed all day. It even terrified my husband. Everyone's experience is different but upon reading up on reviews on this pill I've seen very similar experiences like mine. I notified my physician because I couldn't take the side effects anymore and he quickly took me off it and prescribed a different birth control. As soon as I stopped taking Apri all the negative side effects subsided. Thank goodness the new birth control works well with me. Based on my personal experience, I always notify any physicians that I cannot take this pill. I will never look twice. Just horrible.

Apri birth control pill  

Made my period short and regular but so heavy. Like only 2-3 days but going through a super plus every couple hours.
