I have suspected PMDD and after being prescribed this pill I experienced a normal period for the first time in my life with no crying or rage and no convincing myself that everyone secretly hates me and that I should just isolate myself. If you forget to take them (especially at the beginning of the pack) those symptoms will return to a moderate degree however. My performance in college and my interpersonal relationships have improved since going on the pill. Is also fairly cheap, I get it from student health services for ~$10 a month.

I think getting off this birth control does my mood a little bit negative and I've experienced some vaginal dryness but Im not too sure if it was from the birth control lol but overall I don't think my body changed at all besides my skin getting clearer and my periods being short and light but I do also skip my periods which makes my period blood dark brown/black whenever I get off of it for a week. If you miss 3-4 pills, my period comes within 2-3 days.

Used for 3 - 6 mo

  •  Stopped using

I felt hungry all the time, gained weight (15 lbs over the 3 months I was on it), and had extremely elevated blood pressure which was not common for me — it was 140/96 at the highest, from the time I woke up to bed time. I had anxiety, high heart rate, and night terrors, again very uncommon for me.

I started taking this bc I have PMDD and also wanted to stop my period all together. I have no interest in getting pregnant. This pill was to stop my period and it did just that. I feel great on it.
