I have been on Reclipsen for a year, taking it continuously (skipping my period, as per doctor’s orders). While on Reclipsen, which is the generic for Apri, I gained about 60lbs, have crazy mood swings and lots of spotting. I’ve been doing Weight Watchers and am more active than I was before I got on the pill budge the scale won’t budge!
I finally got a chance to go to the doctor yesterday and change my prescription as I can’t get time off from work and finally found someone open past 6. I explained my requirements; had to be continuous use because I take it to control cramps, hopefully would help with the mood swings and perhaps allow me to lose some weight. I also told her I’d been on Ortho-Tri-Cyclen-Lo before, but you can’t do continuous use with that. She ended up prescribing me Ortho-Cyclen.
Has anyone had any experience with Ortho-Cyclen? Give me the skinny, good, bad and ugly! 🙂
