Reviews for Dienogest / estradiol

Natazia (dienogest / estradiol): “Absolutely INCREDIBLE pill. Natazia feels like I'm not even taking anything. No side effects at all other than really dry skin- no big deal. Without BC, I have nightmare periods that are horribly painful and insanely heavy that have been ruining my life & causing anemia. I was out of options as no other BC pill (I tried Loestrin, sprintec, Apri, & Ortho Tri Cyclen) was helping my symptoms and just caused a bunch of intolerable side effects and CONSTANT breakthrough bleeding with even worse cramps. This pill solved all my PMS symptoms and period issues and has given me a balanced mood and light pain free period that arrives exactly on time. I can't even comprehend how amazing I feel. This pill is changing my life. It seems too good to be true so I really hope it continues to work this well! If you don't tolerate other BC, definitely try this!”

Natazia (dienogest / estradiol): “I have been on this pill for 11 months. One thing with me for this pill is that I have to be very careful to take the pill when I'm supposed to. If it's a few hours or early next day and you remember, it's ok. If I miss a whole pill, my period was messed up. Before this pill I had bad cramping and horrible 7 day periods! I have no side effects, my periods went from super 7 days to very lite 2 days. This pill is a life saver! Part of the reason I am on this pill is for my horrific periods but the other reason is for an estrogen deficiency. I was experiencing hot flashes, night sweats, thinning in hair, etc. at 29 years old, now I have none of that! I recommend this pill...it has changed my life!”

Natazia (dienogest / estradiol): “I am 47yo and approximately a year ago I've started to have irregular, heavy periods, depression and anxiety. After some tests, I've agreed with my provider that I am in perimenopause and is normal to have some changes in periods, mood and you name it. I tried OTC medications and herbs with some temporary relief. Two months ago, everything got worse so, my provider prescribed Natazia which is a life saver for me. No more irregular and heavy bleeding, my mood and libido returned to normal, less anxiety and depressed mood, and no weight gain. I am very happy with this pill. Unfortunately the co-payment is high..the insurance companies should adjust this...other wise woman with similar problems will not be able to purchase the product and get better. What about EQUALITY my friends??”

Natazia (dienogest / estradiol): “I was prescribed Natazia because it has an extremely high dose of estrogen, which helped with my menorrhagia and massive clots. However, this pill caused me to experience mini strokes and made my doctors believe I had multiple sclerosis at 18 years old. An MRI showed that I was experiencing hemiplegic migraines and that this pill was the root cause. Do NOT take if you have a family history of migraines or stroke. This pill nearly killed me. But it did stop my period which was good.”

Natazia (dienogest / estradiol): “I have been on birth control for the majority of 20 years. Tried every kind. When I got off them, I realized that they had been amplifying my PTSD, anxiety, depression, anger, sadness, everything. I felt normal finally. Well, fast forward to having my first child at 34. C-section caused adenomyosis, endometriosis, heavy bleeding, and polyps. I also started getting more ovarian cysts that wouldn't go away. Eventually after a lot of research, I found Natazia. It's supposed to be the closest to bioidentical available. My mood is normal. I skip the placebos and estrogen only pills after having a 40 day period about 2 or 3 months after starting. Highly recommend taking them like this. Cons: the estrogen still irritates, so I'm still in pain (significantly less though!). Less sexual desire and dryness (not as bad as other pills!). I think its causing hair loss too.”

Natazia (dienogest / estradiol): “Diagnosed with Adenomyosis at 30 due to heavy out of control periods with extremely large clots. Fourth month on Natazia and it's reduced my periods to only 2-3 days of a light flow. Light enough where panty liners suffice. It's brought my life back to normal.”

Natazia (dienogest / estradiol): “I have been on Natazia for 5 months now for very heavy bleading. My periods would always last about 5 days, but for the past 10 years I would pass many blood clots. I couldn't wear tampons. I was always worried I would stain my clothes during work or out in public. I just turned 40 & started taking this BC. My periods are now so light & only last 2-3 days. I can now get away with just liners. I still may have slight cramping the day before or on day 1 of period. I also had some cystic hormonal acne on one jawline, this has cleared completely up after 3-4months. Also I feel my roseacea has been under control with out having to take my prescribed oral antibiotics & medicated gels not sure if from BC. I haven't noticed any other side effects”

Natazia (dienogest / estradiol): “My doctor lies to me. I was put on this pill after being in Lo Loestrin Fe that caused constant break through bleeding. I got on this one SPECIFICALLY to stop that. Guess what? 2 weeks in, just like loestrin and just like clock work, I'm having very heavy break through bleeding and cramping that has prevented me from moving or eating for 3 days now. Horrible pill that does nothing for me. Switching immediately.”

Natazia (dienogest / estradiol): “I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome a few years ago and started taking Natazia for it. Before taking Natazia I would go about 10 months without a period then would bleed heavy for a month or so. I would have cramps that would drop me to my knees. It was unbearable. I went a couple years of dealing with this, then finally decided to get myself to the Dr. He prescribed Natazia and it has been a life saver. I've never had regular periods. I've been on so many different kinds of birth control and this is the only one that has worked for me. Since the first month I have had regular periods. I finally feel like a normal woman with regular periods. It's kind of nice. The only side effect is the acne. I'll take acne over bleeding heavy for a month any day.”

Natazia (dienogest / estradiol): “I was skeptical and uneasy about going on birth control again after bad past experiences with other brands. My doctor prescribed it for me because my natural cycle was way too long,heavy bleeding ,and the worst cramps with fevers. Note-you have to stay 3 months on this pill to see how your body really reacts to it. I pretty much had light period throughout the whole 1st month. I did not ,though, have severe cramps anymore. In this second month, I have been more balanced with the bleeding and it is coming around normal time and not additional like month before. Emotions are still unstable- breaking out more too! Greasy face and feeling super gross. If this doesn't change after 3rd month- I'm switching.”

Natazia (dienogest / estradiol): “I've been on Natazia for over 17 days and I've had good and bad results. Before taking the pill, I got several fibroids and had 2 surgeries to remove them before they returned again. I've very extreme painful periods with heavy bleeding 3 days out of the 7-8 day period. And I'm going through pre-menopause. Natazia made the pain go away this time. But I'm having very dry, dark brown spotting. I have no cervical mucus. I think this pill is good for the pain and bleeding but bad for what I'm experiencing now. I think I need to try something else or get the hysterectomy.”

Natazia (dienogest / estradiol): “I started taking this pill for breakthrough bleeding 4 months ago. Since I had my children I have not been able to take any oral contraceptive pills to help with the constant bleeding. I even tried Mirena for 1 year. The first 2 months were like magic. Now I am having excessive bleeding on my 3rd week of pills and couple of days of spotting when I should have my period. I don't have any emotional or physical side effects, but Natazia is expensive.”

“When I reached my pre teen years I started having a never ending period cycle with a two-three day break in between. I always had a wonky period cycle. I started my period when I was 11 and it lasted for a normal week in March and didn't come back for a year. It then evened out and became normal until my 14th year when it started to become my life. It would go from 3 months straight to 3 months off and then to many months on and only a couple weeks off and then only a couple days off by my 17th birthday. That's when I was finally trial run through the process of several different BC pills and this one ended up working amazingly. I'd rather not have it at all than have it every day of my life! But now I can't afford it so I have to say bye.”

“I started taking it for excessive bleeding (was hospitalized with anemia a few times). The first month was ok - the bleeding definitely was lighter. I did get some dizziness but it was minor. In the 2nd month on day 7 bleeding started. At first light, and then the most severe I ever experienced, with clots so huge and frequent that I did not understand where they could be coming from. I kept taking the pills through the second package since dr told me my body has to get used to the hormones - but I became so anemic and fatigued that I could not get out of bed. Did not start 3rd package. Could work for some - was horrible for me.”

Natazia (dienogest / estradiol): “I took Natazia after having it prescribed for heavy bleeding. Before starting, I would bleed through a pad every time I went from a seated to standing position and passing painful tangerine sized clots. (Sorry for TMI but trying to be helpful) I suffered with severe anemia after every cycle due to my period having no end date and sometimes lasting weeks to months long. The first two weeks on Natazia, I did notice headaches, breakouts and a "Meh" emotional state, not depressed or anxious, but I just felt nothing almost like a robot. After my first month, everything was great, I was back to being as joyful and happy as ever, I had a high sex drive, my acne was alright and I did notice an increase in discharge (I don't really mind it). Periods lasted 2 days every month ranging from light to simply spotting. I was on it for around 7 months until stopping a few months ago. I did notice after stopping, I had a few weird side effects and blood pressure issues but those resolved soon.”
