Reviews for Gildess Fe 1.5/30

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 pretty much have my period all month with exception of maybe 3 days. I am going to stop taking this, even though it's nice to have unprotected sex."

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!"
