I'm 26, and I've just recently begun taking birth control for the first time, as I'm getting married in 3 months.
I started off with Gildess, which is a generic form of Loestrin I believe and was on it for 2 months. I experienced lots of water retention, mood swings, loss in sex drive, etc., but the worst of all was the itching that started in the 2nd month. It was terrible! I called my gyno, and they switched me to Tri-Sprintec ( generic Ortho Tri-Cyclen), which has a different Progestrone in it altogether.
It's been a LOT better with most of the symptoms. No weight gain, mood swings, etc., however, now finishing up my second week of this type, the itching has started back again!
I've read some other forums on this, but people seem to have different opinions. Has anyone has this issue and had some type of resolution??
Any help would be GREAT!
