For Birth Control "I'm on Mylans generic version of Generess Fe and so far its been okay. I've been on 4 different birth controls in the past year and a half and I was put on this one to try to eliminate a cyst I've had since November. While I can say the cyst pain had gone away I have now noticed that I get extremely nauseous on this pill. I'm sure it's just my body adjusting but I feel terrible. I take the pill at 9 every night so I think I have to make sure that I don't have an empty stomach when I take it. This pill has also made me break out a bit but hopefully that will go away in the next few months."

For Birth Control "I like this pill but, I rarely get any side affects. The taste is terrible to me though... its like a terrible mint flavor to me. Your period blood might be brown, mine was, its just my little warning. The first couple of times I thought it was early stages of pregnancy but that is a side effect that is important! You blood being brown is not bad its just old blood. I usually get a day of brown stuff and then red the rest of the way through. My period also ends quicker thank God . Pain wise I used to have terrible cramps to the point I would throw up it was so bad I had to stay home from school. During my period now I would get cramps but not as bad as before and just nausea."

For Birth Control "I've been on this birth control for a little over three years. I started taking it after painful periods. I probably have gained 15 pounds since I started taking it but I'm also 3 years older and glad I don't look like a teenager anymore. In the beginning I took the brown placebos but I stopped and just go from one pack to the next without taking them so I haven't had a period for awhile. I'll have my mood swings sometimes but I had those before being on bc. Other than that I love it."

For Birth Control "Generess was hell for the first month that I took it, I was hungry hungry, broke out, gained weight, I also threw up. But after that month the exact opposite happened, I lost all the weight, my skin was completely clear and my breasts were huge."

For Birth Control "I've been taking it for 3 years, I rarely miss days and I take ALL pills (some people don't take the brown pills). I haven't had my period since 6 months after taking the pill. It's amazing. My first month I had EXTREMELY bad migraines but not any more. I love that they are chewable so I take it in the morning after brushing my teeth."

For Birth Control "I love this birth control. It's the only one I've been on, so I can't compare it to others, but I've been on it for about 4 or 5 years. My fiance and I don't use condoms or any other back up method and I have never been pregnant. I didn't have any weight gain and it cleared up acne. I love it and will stay on this until we decide to have children."

For Birth Control "I started this birth control about 3 years ago because I was experiencing heavy and painful periods and I love it! It gave me barely any side effects and it tastes good, like mint. My periods happen around day 3 of the sugar pill and last for about 2-3 days and are very light. I recommend this birth control for anyone!"

For Birth Control "I started taking this birth control a few months before I got married to my husband. It's the first and only brand I've ever tried, but I've noticed no side-effects. Even during that crazy pre-wedding time, there wasn't any weight gain or crazy mood swings (I was slightly nauseous the first few days, but it was very temporary). I've been on it 2 years now with no problems. Periods are very light, no problems."

For Birth Control "After being on four different types of birth control pills in 3 1/2 yrs and having HORRIBLE side effects ranging from acne, hair falling out, spotting for months, to anxiety, to stroke-like sypmtoms and going to the ER, my OBGYN suggested Generess FE. I LOVE this pill! No side effects at all, other than my breasts have gone from a 34C to a very full 34D! No weight gain (other than in my chest), nausea, headaches, no "foggy" feeling at all. These pills are easy to take, pleasant tasting, and the light, 2-3 day periods are an awesome bonus! I am so happy to have found a birth control pill that works for me and doesn't have nasty side effects. I highly recommend this form of birth control!"

For Birth Control "LOVE this birth control! First 3 months were pretty rough as my body adjusted but now that I'm on my 5th pack I feel 100% like myself! No acne, no weight gain, no mood swings, great energy, normal appetite, etc. Once your body adjusts to it its a great birth control option!"

For Birth Control "I've been on this pill almost 2 years. I gained maybe 5 pounds, but I am also in a happy relationship so weight gain could be from that. I no longer have a period. I may get brown spotting every 4-5 months. I stopped chewing the nasty thing, and I swallow it. I get migraines if I take placebos so I skip those every other month and go to a new packet. Cleared my acne, no pain, my breasts actually got bigger. I am very happy with this pill. No pregnancies! I never take it on time & I skip it. I'm your typical user. I also don't worry about becoming pregnant since I don't build a lining. Love this pill."

For Birth Control "I went on this birth control a few months before I got married and have been on it for two years. I just finished my last pack, as we want to start a family soon. I had hormonal issues that lead to irregular periods and this birth control helped level them out. I have not had any emotional swings or weight gain. It was a great, low-dose birth control and successfully prevented us from having kids for two years. The only negative side effect I had was that it did slow down my libido. I could tell a definite difference in my interest in sex on and off this pill. This wasn't extreme - it just took more work to get me in the mood. I'm very pleased with this product and will probably return if the need arises for me to use birth control again."

For Birth Control "I've been taking Generess Fe for a little over six months now. I am very pleased with the pill and have not experienced any nausea, weight gain, or break outs. I had acne before but after I started taking the pill it cleared up a lot. So far I have had a shorter and lighter period with much less cramping. I did have spotting in between periods the first couple months but that has stopped now. I'm a little freaked out because my period is a lot lighter this month than it has been in the past but from the reviews that I read other people on this pill experience extremely light periods too, or no periods at all. I cannot say how well the pill works for preventing pregnancy though because I use other forms of protection too."

For Birth Control "I've been on Generess Fe for several months now. I went on it to alleviate pain from a small functional ovarian cyst and for the first couple months I totally forgot about the cyst, this past month has been slightly more painful but it still is a great remedy for functional cysts. I have very light periods, about every other month. I think my sex drive has gone down a little but it isn't that noticeable. I did have a scare when I went on some antibiotics that I realized made the birth control ineffective for the week, but it all ended well, so just be aware that there are some interactions. I went on this after being on Junel, which made me break out and get very nauseous. Generess has worked very well for me!"

For Birth Control "This birth control really helped control my periods they are far more light and less painful than before I started this pill. The down side is now it takes just about a miracle to get me turned on, which was never a problem before."

For Birth Control "This birth control has been for the most part great for me, its the first one I tried. The only downside is super low libido but that's about it, no other side effects for me."

For Birth Control "I LOVE this birth control! I've been on it for almost a year. The first month or two my appetite shot up, and I gained a little weight. But after that first month or two my body finally got used to it, and my appetite went back to normal, and weight went down again. Other than that there were no side effects! And it's done its job in preventing pregnancy!"

For Birth Control "I have been taking Generess FE for a year and three months and it works great! No weight gain, no acne, no episodes of mood swings except period PM symptoms but those are normal. I still have a period but it's shorter and lighter. I do have cramps a lot only on period though. There's no spotting or discharge for me. I've had a great experience with this pill and totally recommend it for those who are anemic like me especially!"

For Birth Control "All of these women who said they tried it for a couple months and hated it so they stopped, need to be educated. When you start taking hormones (birth control pill) or you switch pills, it takes a few months for your body to adjust. You could see spotting and side effects for a couple months. However, if you take the pill properly at the exact same time every day then these symptoms such as spotting will go away. I love this birth control because I has a constant hormone dose, so I never spot anymore. Periods are short and much lighter. Fantastic birth control!"

For Birth Control "I've been taking this pill for 15 days and have experienced break through bleeding from day 1 until now. I have mild to little cramps, some nausea but no acne or weight gain. If it wasn't for the breakthrough bleeding I would continue this pill. I am getting married in 25 days and there is no sign of the bleeding stopping, for that reason I am very depressed and unhappy. I was not warned about these side effects before taking it. I've tried taking it with grapefruit juice to slow down the estrogen metabolism, that didn't work. "

For Birth Control "This pill is great! Easy to take and has a nice minty flavor. The only side effect I've had is light spotting here and there, but it's a very very minor inconvenience compared to all the positive things. I've experienced no weight gain or acne, or anything like that. My periods are light, which is great. Still have cramps sometimes, but they're not as bad as they used to be. Sometimes I miss my period, but it's completely normal while on this pill. Had a chat with my doctor about it. And best of all, I'm not pregnant! I would recommend this to anyone, whether you are using at as birth control or to help improve your periods. Details about me: 20 years old, no children, non smoker. I also have PCOS, and it's definitely helped my symptoms."

For Birth Control "I have been taking Generess FE for almost a year now. I was on Sprintec before, and my periods were somewhat irregular and very heavy, so heavy that it worried me. With Generess, my periods have GONE AWAY completely. This worried me at first (of course), but my doctor said for some women, it's normal not to get your period on this pill. I see the same symptoms of PMS when I'm reaching the placebo pills (emotions are high, sometimes acne, the normal stuff), but I never go through a period at all anymore. This is a welcome change, for me. Aside from that, I have no side effects that I have noticed. I'm very happy on this pill. I am 30, somewhat overweight and in generally normal health. My doctor said swallowing it is fine (not chewing)."

For Birth Control "This pill works great, I've been taking it for months however I am now starting to feel really intense cramping and bleeding. It's been four days now, and every time I wake up it's so painful. All in all I think it's great, just make sure you don't ever miss a pill you have to get into the habit of taking them and remembering to bring them with you when you go places overnight, you should pick up on the routine quickly though."

For Birth Control "I was on the pill for 6 months, and this was my first time taking birth control pills. For the first month or two, I found myself feeling nauseated quite often, but I suppose that was just my body getting used to it. And for the first month, I spotted for 1 day and I didn't have my period for the whole time I was on the pill. Before taking birth control, I often got severe menstrual cramps, but with no periods on the pill, I had no cramps at all. One bad side effect was the feeling of being bloated..ALL THE TIME. I also had some weight gain as well, probably about 7-10 pounds in 6 months. I got off the pill a month ago and my periods have started again so I'm sure it was the pill that caused my lack of menstruation."
