Reviews for Gildess Fe 1.5/30
For Birth Control "I have read all these reviews and I am jealous that all of you experienced weight loss! I have experienced weight GAIN but that could also be because I only have a period once every three months (with PMS and some spotting in between). But I LOVE the control this pill gives me! I have been on it since my manufacturer changed it from Microgestin Fe, but it's okay! It feels good to me. I have a lot of unprotected sex and it's nice to know when I start spotting a little that it's okay. I GET NO CRAMPS! Because of my cervical inversion, it is MISERABLE for me to have a period every month. This pill lets me go as long as I want until I want to have one! I just have to be very sensitive and careful, and this pill helps me so much."

For Birth Control "This pill has been a real terror for me as far as breakthrough bleeding. Lately I'm on my "period" more often than not.... I have the worst PMS symptoms. I ignored it the first several months but I'm going on my 8th month now and so Ive given up hope. Onto the next one!"

For Birth Control "I'm 18. I've been on this pill for 5 months and I am switching as soon as possible. This pill causes me to have intense cramps. Not just while I'm on my period, but all month long. They are so painful I have to lay down in a fetal position until they stop, which is usually 15-30 minutes. Besides the extreme pain, I also experienced bad mood swings. The week before and the week I'm on my period I am a raging animal. It is very hard to control. I've used several other birth control pills in the past two years but I have never experienced PMS like this before."

For Birth Control "Gildess obviously works, I experienced no weight gain and shorter lighter periods. My sex drive has decreased very badly, and I have been experiencing awful mood swings that are really starting to impact my day to day life and I am switching immediately."

For Birth Control "I've been on this pill for almost a year now and it's great. I'm 18, this is my first pill, so I have nothing to. Before I started this I had a period maybe every 3-6 months. My doctor said it's because I am so active. Now I get my period every month and have found that my mood has gotten much better. Before I used to be very somber and now I am a lot happier. I still have acne, most likely because I am still a teen. However I do find it strange that my breasts fluctuate in size every month. Usually a week and a half before I get my period they get a lot fuller. I have noticed weight loss, and am quite happy with it. Overall this is a great pill, plus I don't mind the unprotected sex."

For Abnormal Uterine Bleeding "I was on Gianvi before which gave me HORRIBLE mood swings, I put on weight, and I had my period every day. I was then switched to Gildess Fe and I love it. My weight went down and it's east for me to lose weight. I don't really have junk cravings, and I don't get my period. The first month of taking this medicine I spotted every day, but by the second pack all my spotting was gone. Definitely would recommend this medicine."

For Birth Control "So far I am extremely impressed! After beginning birth control on Reclipsen (the worst pill in the world) I began Gildess because my friend used it and claimed she actually lost weight! So I gave it a try. Weight loss did in fact occur. The junk food cravings that I had accumulated because of Reclipsen subsided quickly and my appetite has gone way down. I only get hungry about once a day. My severe cystic back acne is gone. GONE. It just vanished with this pill. My face cleared up a little as well and the overall texture of my skin is improved. Softer, smaller pores, clearer. NOW THE CONS: Nausea for the first 3 weeks. spotting for the first month. I'm a little more emotional but it's controllable. I really do recommend this pill."

For Birth Control "Before this birth control I had very irregular, very painful, and very heavy periods. Along with that I had "abnormal" hair growth and fluctuating breast size. Since starting this all of these things have improved immensely. I love knowing when my period will come, it's so much more tolerable and lighter then I literally thought possible. The downsides, I have tender breasts (not bad though), occasional nausea, and acne. I've never had acne before, but it is something I am able to control and deal with easily. OH! The best part, I'm not pregnant! Everyone reacts differently to different birth controls. If you have way out of wack hormones like I did, I highly suggest this birth control. Besides, it's inexpensive."

For Birth Control "I was on Microgestin 1.5/30 and then Junel for years with absolutely no problems. I had a regular period, mild cramps, and minimal PMS. Since being put on Gildless by my insurance, my cramps are worse and the PMS has been much more prominent. I am really unhappy with this and am changing brands in hopes of a better outcome."

For Birth Control "I love this pill. I just had a baby and I'm on month four of pills. This cleared up my acne significantly I haven't had a breakout since I started. No weight gain but this might be making it harder for me to lose my last 5 lbs of baby weight. I don't experience anything else. Just this last month my period came twice but they were both short."

For Birth Control "I am 23. I was on a pill from when I was 16-22. I switched to a Mirena IUD for 6 months (gave me horrible yeast infections and I literally had my period for 6 months). I have been taking Gildess Fe 1.5/30 for a year. Nothing to complain about, no attributable weight gain or mood changes. BUT, in all the years I have been on birth control I would get my period 48 hours after taking the last active pill, like clockwork. However, this month, it's been 5 days and no period. Assuming I'm not pregnant (very low chance, we use condoms as well) then this pill is great, but not having a period is making me stressed!"
