User Comments about Low-Ogestrel
18 Oct 2017 I take low ogestrel 28 to help treat PMDD. It is not prescribed to me for birth control since I had my tubes tied almost 10 yrs ago. I skip the placebo week and opt out of having my period 3 months at a time and the 4th month I take the placebo pills and my period will begin. Haven't had any problems with this medication to report of.

17 Aug 2016 i switched to this birth control last year and 1 month in I started to notice ALOT of hair loss. The only thing I could attribute it to was this medication as everything else stayed the same. I quit taking it a month later and noticed my hair starting to grow back. The hair loss was pretty significant and noticeable and very depressing. My hair now a year later is finally growing back in and I've never had a problem with hair loss since I stopped taking it. I do not see a lot of reports of this medication causing this symptom, but I am sure they were correlated. I hope nobody else has this issue.

08 Aug 2014 Doctor recommended I switch to low gesturel even though I was perfectly fine with my other birth control. Since I started taking it I've gotten bad acne, which I've never had before, I can't control my temper, I cannot focus at work, I don't have a good memory, my periods start on different days and are extremely painful, and sometimes my vision is off. I wouldn't recommend this birth control at all and I'm planning on going back to my Zovia 1/35 !

29 Jun 2012 I have been taking various birth control pills for the last 8 years - at first to get my cycle regular, then for the birth control. Since I started Low Ogestrel 8 months ago, I have experienced nausea, headaches, crazy mood swings, a severe drop in libido, and extended depression. At first I thought it was moving and so many life changes, but now that things in my life are positive and looking up, and I still have all of the same symptoms, I realize it's this pill. I'm calling my doctor to get switched off of it immediately.
