Junel Fe 1.5/30 birth control pill  

I liked it for the first few months but I noticed that it was really affecting me negatively at around the 9 month mark. I started having heart palpitations and chest pains and my sex drive disappeared. I thought I was going crazy but I went off of it a few weeks ago and I’m already feeling more like myself.

Junel Fe 1.5/30 birth control pill  

My experience with Junel Fe 1.5/30 has been wonderful. I went from SUPER heavy 2 week-long periods, to the nexplanon which cause months of continuous bleeding and spotting when i wasnt 'actively' bleeding, and finally was prescibed junel fe 1.5/30. Junel Fe gave me the option to reduce the amount of periods I was having. I opted for once every 3 packs or 63 days. My periods have come exactly when they are supposed to, not late or early, they are lighter and the cramps are far less painful.

Portia birth control pill  

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.

Portia birth control pill  

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.
