@strawbabies:  I switched bc a couple times in order to find something that worked for me. Everytime I switched I would break out for a couple of months and then it would clear up. I would give yourself a little bit of adjustment time before I would get down about it. I’d rather be 10lbs heavier and enjoy my experience with my partner (to keep us both happy) then be thinner and not into sexy time.

@mwitter80:  agreed!!


Give it three months. That’s usually the “period” physcians want you to try it out. The weight gain def sucks and of course no one wants that! I’ve had to change a couple of times too because certain ones give me unbearable migraines (about 2-3 days a week!) I did notice changes in libido too…

Don’t freak out!  More than likely, once your body adjusts to the new hormone levels, it will regulate itself.  Right now it’s probably saying, “WTH?!” and responding accordingly.  I break out a little just from switching face wash until my body adjusts.

I had the same problem with Beyaz. My Fiance was starting to take it seriously that I didn’t want him in that way, and when we would I would be super dry. On top of that, I gained a considerable amount of weight in the past year being on it I’ve been on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo for the past week, and I already see changes. I’m much better sexually with the fiance and I feel like I’m starting to notice a small difference in weight! Your physican will probably want you to wait for a couple of months before switching.

Gross, and gross. I am on Lexapro for anxiety and I take Loestrin Fe for BC. My sex drive is diminished some (due to lexapro) but I can orgasm and SO and I are in agreement that that the benefit outweighs the side effects right now. Have you looked into Mirena? It is a low-hormone IUD without a lot of the side effects of regular BC. I would have it in a heartbeat, but I’m too small, so my Dr. wouldn’t consider it. It might be a good option for you, since you’re in a committed, mature relationship.
