"I took Syeda to lessen my acne. The first four months I had the worst acne I have ever had, cheeks, forehead, everywhere. It was painful and hurt my confidence. I kept taking it because many users here said to keep taking it, that the acne would subside. Also, it’s good at helping me prevent pregnancy. I'm on my fifth pack now and all my acne is gone. I just have dark spots from the scarring. It feels so good, clear skin is all I wanted. But now I have moderate depression and anxiety that can become debilitating at times. I know if I stop taking it, my acne will flare up. But this depression is really disturbing my quality of life."

"I had been on Ocella and Yazmin for years, all of my painful cystic acne was gone and I felt great. I got put on Syed by my pharmacy and my face was breaking out like an 8th grader. Also it gave me the appetite of a HORSE. I ate and ate as if I hadn't eaten in months... also gave me a severely bloated. If you are happy with what you currently use I would suggest caution before trying or at least pay close attention to the symptoms."

"Used to take Ocella for years and my skin was clear. Rare acne cysts. Stopped taking it. Off the pill I would get a guaranteed 1-3 scarring cysts per month on my chin. Hormonal acne. Went back on BC pills and was given Syeda. Huge appetite increase. Didn’t really gain weight but got a little extra flab on my belly. Over 6 months I had gotten 2-3 acne cysts. Not the best results considering they scar. Tried taking multiple packs at a time and that helped. Always got cysts 2 weeks after period around expected ovulation just like when I was off the pill. Only side effect with Syeda as mentioned was increased appetite. I’d get spotting mid month. At first few months felt like I had no ambition (mood change) but that feeling subsided. I had several other months where I took one pack, got a period, 2 weeks later experienced very light spotting and an acne cyst. But not every month did I get a cyst. Frustrating and unpredictable! Only twice did I take two packs at a time."

"Started taking Syeda for acne and my emotions were out of whack. I also started getting horrific migraines which had never happened and doesn’t run in my family like migraines usually do. Took me months to track it back to Syeda but it ended up being a side effect that none of my doctors or pharmacists caught. Do not recommend this birth control- the risks far out weigh any good reviews I’ve read and it did nothing to help with my periods either. Avoid at all costs!"

"I took this to help clear my skin. It was not clearing, and by the third month, I got horrible cystic bumps on my chin and it was so painful. I’ve never had cystic acne and I stopped taking them. My skin started to clear in the next couple of days"

"I was on this page 5 months ago reading reviews because I was so desperate to get rid of my acne because no products worked. I spent so much money on skin care and nothing worked and I was so hopeful for this but I swear it made my acne 10x worse I didn’t want to go out with friends bc I was so embarrassed of my acne and bumps but I still had hope maybe it get worse before it gets better and one day I was just like u know what I’m gonna stop taking these It’s not improving anything. Not even lying one week later all my acne cleared up once I stopped taking them. I do feel cramps here and there but that’s my hormones going back to normal. And I wasn’t getting new pimples everyday like I was when I was on the pill. This Syeda sucks don’t do it. Save your time"
