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.

Yaz birth control pill  

Five stars because it saved my life. I have zest for life and do not intend to kill myself, but my PMDD turned me into a threat to my own safety for two out of every 3.5 weeks. I was so miserable that I wanted to be euthanized. Yaz makes me feel normal again, treat people normally again. The downside is some bloating, breast tenderness, and what little libido I had is gone. Additionally, since starting the pill I am prone to uncontrollable and unprofessional bouts of weeping when I do not feel like I need to cry. This is highly frustrating but better than living with PMDD. Generic version does not control my PMDD symptoms, brand name for me only.

Yaz birth control pill  

Yaz hit me like a freight train. Only lasted a month. Anxiety, panic, isomnia, dizzy spells and nausea and loss of appetite, and oh my god I peed like every 30 minutes, and felt my bladder was filling back up as it was emptying. A lot of pelvic pressure. I was tested for UTIs and got to a point where I made ultrasound and urologist appointments for my bladder, I had no idea what was going on. I did end up finding out I have a small bladder, so the diuretic effect of Yaz just hit me very hard. Do not recommend. The anxiety and insomnia hit hard and two weeks after stopping everything is normal, but those anxious thoughts at night needed ongoing cognitive behavioural therapy to get through.

Yaz birth control pill  

I think Yaz has gotten a bad rap in the past, but for me it was totally fine. It was a great choice for me at the time and I experienced no major side effects. I would recommend this to others.

Yaz birth control pill  

Ive been using birth control for so long that im not sure whats what. I am now worried about longer term effects of the pill and the fact that my natural cycle has been disrupted. Knowing what i know now i think i would have stopped taking hormonal birthcontrol a long time ago.
