... Well my experience with Alesse was good and bad. I was on it for about 3 years and had totally flawless skin but I had no sex drive and I gained about 25 lbs. ... (3 replies)
... I'm one of those that totally hated Alesse, got off of it after a week, ya I know that there's the whole idea of staying on it for a few months but it was taking over my life. I got back on Nuvaring this month and it was clearing up my skin in the last week I had it in, and then I'm on my off week now, and I'm broken out, buut I think the hormones will be more sustained in a...

... After battling acne for most of my life, It finally cleared up when my doc switched me to Loestrin (Microgestin) 1/20. The problem is that it killed my libido and my ability or orgasim. My doc just swiched me to Alesse b/c it has more male horomones but warned me that I will probably break out again. I've read a lot of people on this site say that they broke out on Alesse...

... I am on Alesse and the only time I experienced breakthrough bleeding was when I did 2 packs in a row and skipped my sugar pills (I wanted to change my period for a vacation). This bleeding did last a VERY long time, but as I recall it wasn't too heavy. I would recommend following your pack as normal and following up with your doctor. Everyone's body is different; you can... (1 replies)
... I would ask my gyn but he's a specialist who won't answer questions on the phone and my next appt is on Nov 28th. I am however planning to see my GP this weekend. ... (2 replies)

... I am on the generic for Alesse, which is Aviane. Unless the person who prescribed those pills to you wrote "DISPENSE AS WRITTEN" then more than likely you will get a generic substitution as well. I have both negative and positive things to say for this pill. I cannot take anything but this because every other pill has TOO much hormone in it for my body and would cause me to be... (1 replies)
... I am aware of side effects I am about to go on alesse starting my next period I have regular periods, and do not have any acne This is the thing... i have been reading all over the internet about different peoples encounters with Alesse. Like hearing that this one person got horrible acne after not having any ever before. Or gaining weight like never before. This makes me... (1 replies)
... I don't think people have a lot of experience with Alesse and that's why they weren't responding. And also, I think people just don't know and they don't want to give you a wrong answer. ... (3 replies)
... Hi everyone, I am on my 4 month of Loestrin 24 Fe pack and have had the weirdest cycles since starting this pill. The first month on it I had a two week period the second month I spotted on and off all month and this past month I did not have a period at all. This month I have had an AWFUL acne breakout, cramps, fatigue, and moderate breast tenderness that won't seem to go... (45 replies)
... I've been on Alesse for three months and still haven't had a period. Even during the placebo pills...I don't even have spotting. ... (8 replies)
... I've not been on any of these pills. I'm also not familiar with Levlite. However, I know that Alesse and Loestrin are high-androgen pills, which would be good for sex drive, but bad for acne. You might try something lower in androgens like Ovcon-35, Brevicon, or Modicon. Androgens are male hormones. Any pill can make you gain or even lose weight. Everybody is different... (5 replies)
... Hi girls! I will be switching to either Levlite, Alesse or Loestrin next week. ... (5 replies)
... I was on Alesse at one point and I always started on Tuesday between 2-4 PM. Now that's regular! (8 replies)
... I start on Wednesday, and I am also on Alesse. I ended up getting it the second day I was on my placebo pills. So should I be expecting it next month to come on the same day? Or is it still just going to around 2-4 days or something for me? (8 replies)

... So I started taking Alesse a little less than a month ago. Im on a 28 day pack and I just finished taking my pink pills. So all I have is a week of placebos to go. ... (8 replies)
... It should, although it's common for your cycles to be irregular and heavier when first starting the pill. You need to take the pill perfectly for several cycles/months to start seeing shorter/lighter periods. However, some women get shorter/lighter periods their first month, but that's not the norm. Yes, you will take 1 tablet every day regardless of whether you have... (1 replies)
