  • There's really no birth control pill with no side effects, and they're different for everyone. All you really can do is try and see how each one will affect you. I know how frustrating it can be though. When I was on the pill, they all gave me some sort of problem, from horrendous cramping to blurred vision. The only other thing I can think to suggest would be Nuvaring, since the dose is lower.

  • i would suggest the nuvaring. I am on it and love it. No bad side effects. I dont get wacky mood swings. I was on both the pill ortho cyclin (sp?) and i also used the patch, those were horrible.
