03 Oct 2011 In general I loved it! The medication is small and tastes like mints so it can be taken easily anwhere with out a drink! It was a little on the expensive side but I loved it!

03 Jun 2011 This birth control has been the best one for me I had no side effects, I did spot for the first month but it was nothing like compared to the nuva ring. Femcon is great I love it also has brought back my sex drive again which nuva ring also got rid of for me. Definitely would recommend it.

19 Mar 2011 I like that it included iron in the off week pills, but my skin got a lot worse while I was on this

06 Feb 2011 I just had my fourth child via c-section, and I am scheduled for a tubal ligation on March 1st, but until then I am taking Femcon as a temporary birth control method and I have went through hell since I started to take it. I never suffer with migraine headaches and they have been terrible since I began this pill. Also, I have had the worst case of breakthrough bleeding that anyone could possibly have. I would definitely NOT reccommend this pill to anyone at all. I have been nervously worried about my health in this past month.
