This medicine has served as a great birth control/contraceptive but has been absolutely terrible otherwise. I just finished my 4th month on this pills and have finally realized that the severe mood swings (crying spells) and bad headaches throughout the month are NOT worth it. I have been on 2 other birth control pills and neither one of them made me feel like I was literally going crazy. I will breakdown over the smallest things and it's just not normal. My GYN said many people have reported terrible mood swings while on this medication and I'm happy to be changing to something new.

I have experienced a lot of bloating and stomach pain with this medication. I've experienced nausea and diarrhea, as well as sore breasts. It is also a very costly medication despite the fact that there is nothing particularly special about it other than having folic acid. I switched to a new medication a month after starting Safyral.

I began Safyral for the purposes of birth control. I have taken Safyral for 3 months,and I am making the decision to discontinue this due to issues with acne. My skin has gone from clear, to severely scarred with hyperpigmentation from the acne that has come an gone. I have seen 2 dermatologist, and after 4 prescriptions, it will temporarily clear up and new acne forms. The acne that forms is not typical acne, they are actually knots that can't be burst and it has affected my self-esteem and is making me depressed considering I've never really had skin issues. So after giving it a chance, seeing the dermatologist without being satisfied with my results, I'm putting Safyral in the trash...and attempt to find something to get my skin back to normal.

Major anxiety on this pill. I never have anxiety nor do I have a history of depression. This pill makes me feel absolutely crazy.

I have low estrogen at 25. This pill has given me horrific nightmares every night since starting, nausea and vomiting, and extremely sore breasts. I don't recommend it.

I was dubious about this birth control pill helping with my PCOS. I have found that it has been the best BC pill for my PCOS that I have taken. Many of the other BCs I have taken were not effective at all at stopping or reversing the hair growth and caused severe bleeding during menstruation. My Dr. said that there was an extra ingredient in Safyral that made it more effective for PCOS symptoms. I would agree. Most if not all of my initial side effects of this pill are either gone or so minor that I do not notice them as much anymore; worth it for the benefit for sure.
