... I used Lo/Ovral and didn't find a surge in my libido (I was also suffering a low libido). However, my experience shouldn't deter you from at least trying Lo/Ovral for a few cycles to see how it affects you. (5 replies)
... Lo Ovral 28. I was on this pill back about 3 years ago for about 6 months and remember having no problem at all. ... (8 replies)
... A_Moore: If you do give Low-Ogestrel (or Lo/Ovral) a try, please post a "review" in the future. I have been on Seasonale for almost 2 weeks, and I have been getting a bad headache around the same time of day for almost a week. I may need to look into trying something different even if it does help with my heavy periods. I'm curious to see if Low-Ogestrel will work better for... (7 replies)

... Lo-Ovral has 30mcg of ethynal estradiol... which is more than Alesse, and the same as two weeks of Triphasil (according to, the second week of Triphasil takes you up to 40mcg of estrogen)... but 30mcg is still considered a low-dose birth control pill (anything under 35 mcg is). I do think you were misquoted that the pills you were on had varying hormones in... (6 replies)

... I will be switching to Low-Ogestrel beginning tomorrow and was wondering if anyone was taking the form of BCP and had anything to share? I am switching to this from Seasonale, which was horrible!! The btb lasted for the last 2 months. I was on Desogen before that with no major side effects except that my period was very heavy the first 3 days with bad cramps and so my doctor... (7 replies)
... Definitely go for the generic! Low-Ogesterl is the generic for Lo/Ovral and with my insurance I only pay $4 a pack!! Big time savings! (7 replies)
... You are correct! Sorry about the mixup. I was misinformed about Low-Ogestrel and Lo/Ovral being the same as Seasonale; however, I did find out that Portia is the same. I bet I'd save a ton of money if my doc prescribed Portia (generic for Nordette) to use continuously. (7 replies)
... You're welcome, Liz, and glad to hear that you're supplementing with these things, it's so important, especially when you're on the pill. Every woman is different in her reaction to a given pill, though. Usually, but not always, the B complex will help with the mood stuff. I've just read so much bad things on this board about Yaz and Yasmin, it's ridiculous. I would never... (8 replies)
... ning I take a multivitamin, vit B complex, 500 mg of vitamin C, and a cranberry pill. So, I don't think that is the reason for my mood swings. When I was on Lo Ovral back a few years ago, I wasn't taking the Vit B complex and still had no mood swings. ... (8 replies)

... Hi Cooper! I can tell you that my daughter just stopped taking Low - Ogestrel. She had been on Aviane initially, but had breakthrough bleeding, so switched to Low-Ogestrel. In a 2 month period of time, she has gained 10 pounds. She exercisies regularly and eats healthy, so this is the only change in her life. That, along with an increase of at least an entire cup size,... (8 replies)
