I started taking this in June (ish) and was previously on another bcp. Since then, I've had terrible (abnormal for me) symptoms - weight gain, bloating, gas pains, general feeling of ill health (nausea, light headedness, etc.), cramping (randomly and during sex), constipation, anxiety/mood swings, etc. I feel like I must be pregnant a lot (tests are negative)? but then I worry that maybe I'm one of those people who need a blood test. It's making me crazy. Has anybody had similar experiences with it?
I went on because I was attracted to the lessened period deal, but I'm going to call my doctor this week to go back on the old pill, or something. After giving it 6 months, I feel like my body should be used to it (whenever I try a new pill, it takes a few months to regulate). Is there a non-hormonal option that you've liked? I really like the pill in terms of regulating my period (before I went on it, I would get it VERY irregularly and it was awful).
