Hailey Fe 1.5/30 birth control pill  

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.

Hailey Fe 1.5/30 birth control pill  

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 never know when I'm just "overreacting" or when it's the effect of birth control. However, depending on the time of day I take my birth control, I may feel headache or nausea symptoms and it tends to be pretty obviously connected to the birth control (i.e definitely not because of anything else).

It’s a pretty average birth control. It hasn’t affected me negatively a great deal but there are some impacts that have negatively affected me.

Yasmin birth control pill  

I have been taking it for a month now and can say that my breasts have gotten a lot bigger than they usually did before my period, but they hurt and I have sore nipples most of the time, mood swings, a lot of brown discharge, but I will see if they will go away after the 3 months of adjusting to it, otherwise the effects are really not that bad. I find it quite benefic.

It’s fine. I’ve gained quite a bit of weight but compared to others used in the past I feel like my mood swings aren’t as intense.
