... I was recently on Loestrin 24 FE. I was on that for about 2 years. I had to stop taking those because it was giving me terrible breast issues. My breasts were so sore for about 6 months. I was NOT pregnant, no tumors, no sign of cancer (I was assured that cancer doesn't hurt). Upon stopping usage, I felt 100% better. The doctor prescribed that I possibly need to take a lower...

... Thanks so much Kellis & sheridan - that really helps - i figured that most people who say "alesse" here are referring to the brand name and not to the generic, but it helps that you say that most of your patients take the generic...I will probably switch considering that the brand name costs 3x more (3 replies)
