  • Ive been on it twice once after my son was born in 2002 and had a good experience with it. However I got it again after DD was born this year and had to get off of it. So really you could have a good or a bad experience. this last time my skin looked great but my hair fell out by the handfull and I couldnt lose any baby fat so I quit getting it.

  • I hate it. I didn't gain weight or anything but it gave me horrible mood swings. It is also worse for your body, according to some studies, than the pill.
