13 Jul 2017 I started my period and was bleeding from fibroids. I thought I would never stop bleeding until the doctor prescribed me Cryselle twice a day for 5-7 days. I was amaze because it worked It finally stopped my heavy bleeding. I'm so happy because once my period starts it prolongs for three more weeks. It helped me so it's not bad after all. I didn't have any side effects. I'm thankful for this form of birth control/Medication 😜

10 Jun 2016 I've been taking Cryselle for almost 10 years and it's the only BC I will use. I've tried others and all others cause side effects of weight gain. I ask for this to be written DAW. It helps control cramps, acne and migraines. I recall mild nausea upon starting Cryselle that ended after a few months.

16 Mar 2016 I am very displeased. I started cryselle because my previous birth control wasn't strong enough to stop bleeding caused by endometriosis. This drug made me very sad, depressed and angry and I had a lot of mood swings. On top of all of that, I gained 14 pounds in a month. What fun.

25 Apr 2014 I started taking Cryselle 9 years ago. After a few months my periods stopped completely and I have menstrual cramps daily. The cramps are every day but more severe when I should have my cycle. The pain is horrible and I deal with it everyday. Doctors have not been able to explain it yet but have diagnosed me with Pelvic Myalgia.

31 Aug 2013 I've been on Cryselle since the end of May. I took one pack of pills and then started noticing really weird, UTI like symptoms. I went to the doc, got put on antibiotics. My culture was negative for nitrate/bacteria but I did have leukocytes (white blood cells) in my urine.... really weird, suggests inflammation apparently? I've had a CT scan and going to a urologist on Monday because I've had these symptoms since the end of June, after completing one pack of pills, my pain was UNBEARABLE and because I was on antibiotics (for what the doc thought was a UTI?) I stopped taking the pill for almost an entire month and started feeling better. I went back on it when I was done with my antibiotics, I've been on it now for a month and a week and I'm miserable! Is it possible that my birth control is causing what feels to me like kidney pain? I'm ready to stop taking it and see what happens.... :( I'm going to talk to my doctor and see if this is a possibility and then call my gyno and ask to switch. I always took ortho-tri or Yaz but had some bad side-effects (gallbladder failure) on YAZ, so I was switched to cryselle when I started back on the pill this year.... HELP! I feel awful!

02 Sep 2013 Get off of it!!!! That pill is horrible!! I had many horrible side effects that I thought were other things until I stopped taking that pill. My favorite birth control pill before I got the Mirena was Lo-estrin 24. Talk to your doctor about switching ASAP!!
