Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: I have been on Sronyx for about a year now, & the only problems I ever had was the moodiness during the first two months and breakthrough bleeding for a month straight. Other than that, I love it. I have no intension of switching. I recommend it.

Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: I have had no problems. I'm am half way through my second week and have not experienced any difficulties. I am hoping it will control my appetite, though. Gave it a 10.
Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: This is my first month on this name brand. Before I used Lessina, which I used for one year and my pharmacist said it's the same pill under a different name.
I have much lighter periods with almost non-existent cramps. My periods are 1 day shorter. I do have a light PMS for about a week before hand, which doesn't thrill me, but it's worth the trade off. I have no emotional side effects, and my sex drive seems the same. I still have good vaginal lubrication, which was an issue for me with a different birth control, so I am happy about that. My weight has been up and down my whole life, so I can't blame the birth control.
I'm a happy camper with Sronyx. I wish it was cheaper, though.
Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: I've been on Sronyx for about 4 weeks now. The 2nd week into it I was extremely moody and emotional. I've always been physically active, but lately its made me lethargic. It definitely increased my appetite and now that I'm on my fourth week, I'm extremely bloated.
Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: After a few hours of taking the first pill, I felt slightly sick and sleepy. I woke up feeling down and took the next pill, about three hours later I was nauseous and sick to my stomach. I threw up after the 5 hours of nausea and finally felt a little better. On the third day I didn't take it because I was already feeling emotional and depressed, not to mention still sick and slightly week.
A birth control pill has never affected me this way before.
Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: My experience with this pill is good and bad, after reading everyones comments I realize that I am more moody and tired. I also wanna cry over the smallest things. I too have lost 15 lbs on this pill (weight I could not afford to lose by the way) and my appetite has severely dropped. But my periods are on the exact day everyone month, and my acne is gone except for the week of my period.
Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: I have been on this pill for about 3 1/2 months. I only had breakthrough bleeding the first month, and I never experienced nausea. I had small headaches, but those didn't bother me. However, over the past 2 1/2 months, I have been the most depressed, fatigued, and angry I have ever been in my entire life. I don't want to do anything or see friends or family, and it only lessens when I'm on my placebo week, so I know this isn't a coincidence anymore.
Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: Been on one month and 2 weeks. Unlike other birth controls I had no nausea. Which was great I am always sick taking any other birth control pills. But unfortunately my acne gets too bad the week I take the inactive pills, so I am looking into different birthcontrols.
Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: I started on Sronyx going from Ortho Tricylen Lo which is HORRIBLE. I felt like death every time I took Ortho. I had swollen breasts, mood swings, severe nausea. Sronyx was a God send. I had no symptoms, and it cleared up my mild acne. My sex drive is back.
Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: I have been on Sronyx for 2 weeks now, and I absolutely love it! My skin is clear, I have NO mood swings, and I'm actually losing weight. No complaints, I love this pill!
Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: I had been on Lo Seasonique before and it was AMAZING and it cleared my skin and made me lose weight so needless to say I wasn't happy when the army clinic I had to go to didn't carry it. They gave me this and said it was just like my previous birth control and its NOT. I've gained almost 4lbs in the first month and its given me such painful cramps. They keep me up at night and make me want to vomit, decreased sexual desire. The only up side is I'm not pregnant.
Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: I received Sronyx from a free clinic and I have been on it for over 3 years! I have literally tried every single birth control option they had available. Nothing has ever given me such perfect experiences as Sronyx has. While I'm on Sronyx my periods are very light without cramps or pain. All my acne is gone and my skin glows! And if I miss a pill, like clockwork I would breakout. Sronyx even regulates my weight and curbs my appetite, no lie. I notice other birth controls make you extremely hungry and gain weight but Sronyx does no at all. I will never stray away from this pill. I absolutely love it!

Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: I was on this pill for two months. Both months I started my period in week 3. Also, I have been moody and almost depressed, tired and my mind is just foggy. Time for a switch.
Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Abnormal Uterine Bleeding: I have been on this pill for a few weeks, and it has caused me to cry constantly! I feel depressed ALL THE TIME, and I have no appetite. So, this pill isn't for me.
Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel): I first started on this pill when I was 16 and it was perfect with no side effects. Now I'm 19 & I experienced some minor side effects. My breasts were extremely sore for the first month and I got bloated. I'm not sure if my appetite changed on its own but my belly was really puffy. Needless to say on the last day of my inactive pill I was peeing a bunch every 2 seconds and my bloating was reduced. Other than that it shortened and lightened my period and I had fewer cramps.
Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: I have been taking this birth contorl for just over 6 months now. I am so ready to find a different one. I never had headaches until I started taking this pill. I experience them at least three times a week now. This pill has made me constantly crave sweet junk food. Hello weight gain! I also have been extremely emotional. I feel depressed about everything and I feel like crying more often than not. Not the pill for me!
Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel): BEST BIRTH CONTROL EVER. I took Yasmin when I was 16 and it made me a total wackadoo...so I was a tad weary about trying any sort of hormonal birth control again...but I'm so glad I did! I've been on Sronyx for about a month and I feel great! My libido has even gone up, which my boyfriend greatly appreciates.
Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: I've always had bad skin, but after 4 months on this pill I had painful cystic acne all over my jawline. It didn't even look like acne; but I looked it up online and it was in fact hormonal acne brought on by birth control. I would also get terrible headaches the day my period started.
Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: I took this birth control about 6 months and I am very moody and I cry over everything that happens to me. I get headaches very easily after I started to take this pills. Everytime I had sex, it wasn't as good as it used to be, and now I've been off for over a month now, and I am not moody, but I have one of the side effect of quitting birth control which is I haven't got period. I am very nervous about this as well.
Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: I had never taken any type of birth control until I met my fiancee. I was on Implanon for almost 11 months and I hated it! I had all the side effects that came with it, plus my period for all those months non-stop and to say I almost ruined my relationship and to top it off I got an infection for using tampoms all the time. Anyway today is my 5 day taking Sronyx and I already feel great no side effects what so ever. I'm happy again without any mood swings. I really recommend this pill.

Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: I have been using Sronyx for just about 3 months now and I am definitely not too fond of it. It makes me extremely moody. I get mad easily and at times I feel like I just want to cry for just about anything. Because of this, it messed up my relationship quite a bit and I have absolutely no desire to keep taking it. I'm going to keep at it for a little while longer to see if I get any better and to see if the side effects go away.
Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: The first time I started using birth control I started on a different pill which I can't remember the name but stopped after the second month due to crazy mood swings and worse cramps during my period. When I went back to the doctor I got prescribed Sronyx and I have been using it for three months now and I have yet to experience a bad side effect. I love this pill! I highly recommend it . No headaches, cramps, or mood swings.
Sronyx (ethinyl estradiol / levonorgestrel) for Birth Control: I started using the pill for the first time 3 months ago due to TERRIBLE cramps, periods every 3 weeks lasting 7 days, extreme mood swings, and just overall miserable, painful periods. When I started on Sronyx I had nausea with mild headaches for the first couple of days. After that those symptoms went away. My periods still started on the 3rd week, so my periods lasted for 2 whole weeks. This happened for 3 months. I am switching to Seasonique, because I need a heavier dosage. Had Sronyx been a little stronger it would have worked well. My cramps were much more bearable and the bleeding was less. Overall it's a good pill, just not the one for me.
