Hello..Im 24 yr old, generally healthy woman and will be starting on bc for the first time ever this week. My doctor prescribed Loestrin 1/20 (I opted for the generic Microgestin because it was much cheaper) and I am just wondering what kind of experiences anyone has had with this type of birth control. I've read some posts and they seem a little mixed..my main concerns are possible side effects like weight gain or erratic bleeding/spotting (i've always had regular periods for no more than 3 or 4 days at a time). I've never taken the pill before because I'm not really all for the "putting additional hormones into my body" thing, but my partner and I decided it is the best way to go for the amount of sex we're having. I'm also wondering how long from when I start taking it will it become effective in protecting against pregnancy. Thanks so much for any insight you can provide!
my fiancees sex drive dropped to absolutely nothing on this pill... you wont have to worry about sex cause you wont even want to have it on this. not reccomended.
