Iv been taking apri for over a year now and im debating on going off of it, its completely decreased my sex drive, it makes me very moody right before my period and i get mild cramps at times (which i never used to get when i wasnt on birth control) i frequently get head aches, and i noticed my left breast is often tender a lot of the time but there are no noticable lumps or thickness... iv also gained almost 15lbs and i cant lose it, and my apetite is increased... the only good things about this birth control is that im not pregnant and that my period comes on time. So i just wanted to get an opinion before i contact my doctor about it. I know doctors dont reccoment you going off the pill but the pros weigh out the cons.
