I started having heavier periods a year ago and they became very painful to the point where I would skip work or class. I was on ibuprofen to control the pain but got an ulcer from that so then I was prescribed Balcoltra. I didn't even make it a week before I felt terrible. I felt tired all the time and all I wanted to do was sleep, but I couldn't sleep. My doctor said to take the pill at night to sleep through the nauseousness but regardless I would wake up and vomit in the middle of the night. I felt unmotivated which was hard being in college. The worst part was I was very emotional and would just randomly cry. My brain felt foggy and I knew this was the complete opposite of myself! I stopped after a week because I didn't want the side effects to get any worse.

Balcoltra birth control pills.This medicine started off good with my body. All of a sudden, I'm bleeding 18 days straight, bloated, cramping, moody, full of gas, migraines throughout the entire 3 months of taking this medicine, and very sore nipples.

I’m experiencing random spotting from a previous birth control so my doctor put me on Balcoltra. The spotting wasn’t as heavy but it didn’t go away. If it worked for me then I would have continued taking it but I will stop. Fair warning…this birth control was going to cost me $300 PER PACK WITH HEALTH INSURANCE. It’s insanely expensive! Now, there is a coupon on the Balcoltra website which lowers the cost to $21 per pack. Look into their savings coupon program if Balcoltra works for you.
