Reviews for Enskyce

Sort by:

For Birth Control "This pill is absolutely awful. Took it to help with my PMS symptoms and nothing has changed, if anything it’s only gotten worse. On top of that, I have experienced extreme mood swings. Worse than anything I’ve known in myself. I am not the usual person I am. I am angered easily, I have severe depression. I am dazed and drowsy. Enskyce has done more harm then good. Would strongly recommend to avoid it!"

For Birth Control "worse worse pill ever!! I was on isibloom then insurance changed to enskyce. It has been 7 weeks on it and I'm spotting everyday which is horrible for sex life; I'm moody and emotional which is not like me and gained 6 lbs! I'm finishing this pack and requesting my old pill even if I have to pay more! This is not worth it and FYI I take it at same exact time daily. Oh and the headaches are daily!! Run from this brand plz."

For Birth Control "I’ve been taking Enskyce for about 7 months now and my periods are only 4 days and very light, I have no cramps, my skin is clear, I never gained weight, and I don’t get headaches. However, in the past 3 months I have been so extremely moody that I’m choosing to stop taking this. If one little unfortunate thing happens, I am a total sobbing mess and I can’t deal with it anymore. I waited to see if it would get better, but it has only gotten worse."

For Birth Control "As a few have said, I started out on Reclipsen and got switched to Enskyce. I will give it props in the fact that it doesn't make me feel sick to my stomach at all. I was on one where I would vomit every day. However, I've noticed I'm more sensitive and prone to cry which I'm not a cryer. I've also gained a good amount of weight while not changing my eating habits and I just feel bloated and like I have inflammation everywhere. Another thing is I've noticed my hair feeling thinner. Ugh...if they have the same amount of hormones in the pill, why do they act differently?!? grrrrr!"

For Birth Control "I never give reviews but this is the worst birth control pill I’ve been on besides TriNessa. This one is absolutely worse though. This specific one gave me horrible headaches for the first two packs and extremely emotional. I’m a very sweet person and it takes a lot to get me angry. Now I get so annoyed and angry extremely easily. I shouldn’t have the angry feelings I have and did not have them before I started this prescription. Do not recommend at all!"

For Birth Control "I only took enskyce for 3 days, so I know my body probably wouldn't have gotten used to it. But after the third day, I was extremely nauseous, dizzy, and had a terrible headache. I had to call out of work I felt so sick. After about 12 hours after taking it, I felt much better. And the next day (after not taking it for 36 hours) I felt completely fine. I also was irritable while I was taking it. I did have some positive effects, like increased sex drive. But I did not want to suffer through that awful feeling for 3 months while my body got used to the hormone. I know it will be different for everyone, but this is my personal experience. Keep in mind, I have a very sensitive stomach and anxiety."

For Birth Control "This stuff is not great. I only was on it for 6 months just because I could not handle the side effects. It made my skin EXTREMELY dry, and I had nice skin, my skin has never been a concern until I started this pill. Also, it made my cramping terrible and made my period extremely heavy, but my period did regulate so I guess overall it did what it was supposed to do. But I did end up changing pills"

For Birth Control "I only have 3 weeks on this pill and I’ve noticed a change in my body. I gained like 7 lbs. and my pants fit so tight. I’m a very active person and go to the gym on a regular basis so I know it’s not because of my diet or exercise routine. I eat pretty healthy, I give in cravings here and there but I know it wouldn’t be to the point of gaining so much weight. I’ve also felt so sleepy, cold temperature wise, and unmotivated. I took naps after work which I don’t normally nap. I keep feeling weird tingling sensations on my arm and sometimes leg. I don’t have the same energy as I did. My sex drive is not as high. I’ll still have intercourse but won’t get so turned on"

For Birth Control "Nonstop spotting for 6 weeks. Weight gain, bloated. I can’t wait to switch back to Juleber. My only side effect with Juleber was bigger boobs."

For Birth Control "Do NOT take this medication. I am 22 years old and have been on the pill since 16. I was having intense menstrual bleeding so my doctor prescribed me a higher dose and ended up giving me this brand. It did not help my cramps what so ever and it made me very emotional. I lost all of my sex drive and became very dry down there. The most scary part is yet to come... A month and a half into it I became EXTREMELY dizzy and light headed. I decided to finish up the month then get off of it. However 2 weeks off of it and I am still extremely dizzy and lightheaded. I have gotten every blood test and nothing comes up. I have seen that several other women experienced pulmonary embolism in the lungs and will be getting this checked out. DO NOT USE!"

For Birth Control "I was on this birth control for 8 months and it wasn't until now that I realized my emotions were gone. I'd either feel extreme anger or extreme apathy and nothingness. It made my cramps worse, I constantly got spotting days before my scheduled period. Do not take this."

For Birth Control "This is the worst! I have taken Desogen and Apri, but switched to Enskyce a few months ago when it was cheaper and it was supposed to be the same. But enskyce has made me bloated, retain water (take diuretics for this) and I had breakthrough bleeding at all different times of the month. Can't wait to finish off these last packs and swtich to something I like again, even if it costs more. Don't get Enskyce!"

For Birth Control "I was diagnosed years ago with dysmennorhea and every since then I have been completely miserable while on my periods. (Back pain, leg pain, cramping, clots, diarrhea, nausea, loss of appetite, etc) I couldn't attend work or school because it made me so sick. I felt like the pain was worsening every month.. Tylenol quit working, tramadol had no effect, I had to take a Lortab to feel relief. So I asked my Dr for birth control pills and since taking them I have such a light period I forgot I was on it.. it only lasted four days. I am relieved of the horrible symptoms and I can finally live a normal life. However there were side effects of this drug, as expected (rash, nausea, loss of appetite, vaginal infection) but they are manageable."

"I switched to Enskyce from Reclipsen for cost effectiveness, and felt different almost immediately. After a few weeks, I noticed that my emotions were considerably more inconsistent. Small things that wouldn't normally bother me started to make me extremely upset, and although I realized that I shouldn't have been upset at the time, I felt like I couldn't pull myself out of being emotional. I didn't pay any mind to it, because I thought some outside things could've been stressing me out, but it got to the point where I'd be having emotional breakdowns almost weekly, and about normally insignificant things. Periods were thicker and more painful. Effective as a contraceptive, but the side effects were a deal-breaker for me."
