... I am 21 years old and have been on oral contraceptives for 2 1/2 years. My gyno first put me on Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo and after using it for about a year and a half, I noticed I still had unusually long periods (lasting between 7-10 days) so she switched me to Lo-Ovral.

I was on it for a few months, and it was horrible. I had the worst mood swings with it. I have never been as angry as I was on that stupid pill. The only time I wasn't ready to rip... (0 replies)
