I was on another birth control, before and I was switched to Hailey Fe suddenly, I think there was some mistake with the prescription but I just thought it would be the same. After the first month I noticed my mood swings were were, I couldn’t stop crying for no reason. I have a series of bad acne breakouts which I’d never had a problem with before. I’ve been having some dizziness and headaches as well and I gained serval pounds in the first 2 weeks which was upsetting because I’m currently on a weight loss journey. I also had some cramping and breakthrough spotting at first. I’m going back to my previous one immediately.

I first went on this bc for heavy periods that gave me awful cramps (would throw up and almost pass out). I’ve always had overall regular periods, this did not change on the pill. My periods did get soo much better (lighter and only 2-3 days, maybe spotting on day 4) and the cramps were so faint, I didn’t have to take any ibuprofen or Tylenol. I was on the pill for 6 months and 3 weeks. I do feel like it heightened my emotions at times (anxious and sad) which is one reason I took a break because I had a lot going on at the time and didn’t want to deal with that (graduation, relationship problems, worried about finding a job). I’ve never really had much acne, maybe a pimple or two around my period, but I do have bacne which completely went away on the pill. I did feel bloated around 5 months on the pill, and water retention maybe, because starting the pill I was 124 pounds and at month 6-7 before I stopped it was like 129-131. This could be stress and holiday foods too though I’m just not sure. Although I wasn’t having sex during this time (we were waiting till marriage) my libido was about the same, maybe even higher. But I wouldn’t know about dryness down there or in there, I could still get like wet not trying to be tmi… but overall I would say it’s pretty good. I may end up trying it again when I’m married. Bc is so personal, my experience may be completely different, you just have to try it :) best of wishes and I hope this was helpful! - JoAnna

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
