... Alesse made my skin SO horrible I can't even describe. I never had an acne problem until I began taking Alesse. Now I am on Yasmin and it has done wonders to get my smooth skin back. No weight gain on either. (10 replies)
... r body. Each and every pill will give you different results than it will someone else taking it. So your best bet is to try them out yourselves. I know people on alesse who gained 15 plus pounds, and some who dropped about 10. some got larger breasts, other saw no change. ... (10 replies)

... i'm only 24 and I have horrible fear of bc pills (also anxiety in general) but I guess more so with this bc of the risks that go along with the hormones. In the past I tried a few pills but never stayed on any of them for more than about a month bc I would have arm cramping. of course all the drs said to stay the pills take vitamins, etc. But I went off of them. And now I... (1 replies)
... I'm really sorry to hear that :( For some reason I thought you were from Australia where I believe there are socialized medical systems. Are there any other free clinics in your area? perhaps a planned parenthood? if not I'd go back and be very insistent in regards to a pap smear. They can also test for STIs/STDs at the same time and you could use that as a reason to get... (5 replies)

... Ok, so I was on Kariva (Mircette generic) for about 2 weeks and I stopped immediately because I was very depressed and had no appetite. I then started Tri-Sprintec (which I believe is the generic for Ortho-Tricyclen) and was on that for about 8 months. I recently came off of it because I was severly depressed and very emotional (crying for everything). I'm trying to find a new... (6 replies)
... If you'd like to know which pills are most commonly complained about, on this and other health-type boards, (and therefore the ones you probably don't want to try), they are OTC, OTC lo, Yaz, Yasmin, Seasonale and Seasonique. A lot of women also complain about Loestrin 24 FE because they don't like getting a period (which is totally weird because I don't understand the... (3 replies)
... Hi, My first form of birth control was Depo Provera, aka Depo Pure Evil. I was on it for a year and a half after a couple people raved about not getting a period. Not only did I still spot the whole time I was on it, I was depressed, had rage problems, gained weight, had a horrible complexion and was miserable! I then switched to Ortho Evra (the patch). It has been working... (3 replies)

... I was only on depo for about 9 months (loved the no period thing as well! wish I could have stayed on it but it gave me such horrible cystic acne!) When I went off of it I went on the Ortho Evra patch. I had no problems adjusting to the patch and my period was pretty normal. However since you've been on it so long there is always the chance of spotting and such during the... (3 replies)

... am older and taking this mainly to regulate my remaining periods before menopause, I think it might be better if I did a 20 microgram estrogen Pill like Levlite, Alesse or Mircette. ... (2 replies)
... I was taking Nicomide tablets for about a year and I'm on birth control. Nicomide is actually a vitamin, not an antibiotic so it doesnt interfere with birth control. When I first started taking the Nicomide pills my dermatologist said they were new so some doctors might know about them now. They worked great for me, better than any other acne antibiotic i was ever on. I... (3 replies)
