FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: VIORELE

User Comments:

For Birth Control “My obgyn tried me on this bc due to heavy periods and the progestin from my previous bc was harsh on my stomach. My first pack, no issues but period was still a bit heavy. Second pack, extremely moody at PMS time and period came a day before I got to the sugar pills. At the end of my pack, period was ending. Started my third pack and period came back with a vengeance. Period is coming to an end but 9-10 days is ridiculous. My periods are usually no more than 7 days with or without the pill. One good thing is I didn’t get pregnant. I will see what happens with one more pack. My obgyn might have to put me on one with a little more estrogen.”

For Birth Control “I have had a terrible time with birth controls, and this one was no different, except maybe the side effects were more extreme. Not only have I gained 10-20 pounds, but I have been extremely depressed and have had horrible nightmares. It took me a while to figure out that it was my bc, and I stopped immediately. My period was pretty regular and I did not get pregnant, but the mood swings, depression, nightmares and anxiety are unbearable. absolutely do not recommend.”

For Birth Control “I want to share a positive experience on Viorele. I’ve had a really difficult time finding a birth control that works for me. On other pills, I spot if I take my pill even hours late. I’ve had full week long heavy periods on other pills. With the arm implant, I spotted for two months straight. With Viorele, I have some cramping right before my period, but just one day and advil helps. And then my period is three days long and so light! I missed a pill just last week and no spotting which is huge for me. It’s all about finding what works for you so i wanted to share my success story on it.”

For Birth Control “Haven’t gotten pregnant on this and my period is pretty light. It lasts about 5 days. My face is also pretty clear, except for random chin breakouts. However, I am SO moody/sporatically depressed, have gained 15 lbs, and have a severely decreased sex drive. I kept thinking something was wrong with me because I’ve always been very easy-going/positive but I’m beginning to think it’s this pill. Beware!”

For Birth Control “I took Viorele for approximately 2 years. It worked great for clearing up my cystic acne and it did it’s job in preventing pregnancy; however, I’ve noticed the following for the past 2 years:-NO desire to be intimate/NO sex drive. This has hurt my relationship as I now have sex with my fiancé only once a month, if that!-UNRULY CRAVINGS which led to 25 lb. weight gain. Currently medically diagnosed with Binge Eating Disorder-moody, irritable, and short tempered demeanor -increase in anxiety and depressionThe only reason I continued to take Viorele was because it was completely free with my insurance but it’s clearly not worth it. In my opinion, you should definitely consider another BC pill/method!”
