I have been on Junel for a little over four years or so. I had just started not long before I became pregnant. When I became pregnant I had actually stopped taking "to try to get my period back on track" as it was starting (light about a week before it should have). I became pregnant which was a highly welcomed event. About 3 months after having my son I went back on Junel. I didn't notice is so much as first but then my period were again off. Starting about a week before they should have been, very light (only needed a panty liner and more for my sake of mind) and then nothing when I should have had my period. I mentioned this to my doc. who said it was normal. So I have continued on. I have notice within the last year though I have become moody, even extremely tense at times when I am mad. My weight has also been an extreme issue. I weight 75 pounds more than when I became pregnant and having the worse time losing it. Just this past 2 weeks I was suppose to go back on the pill. I started and then skipped a day thinking these symptoms were connected to the pill. I had second thoughts and started again after missing 1 or 2 days. The day I went back on experiences the extreme tension and madness. I have thus stopped taking it. I immediately had a period that was almost normal. I am convinced even more that there is a connection with the Junel. I have decided I will stay off for a couple months to see what happens. I had originally been put on birth control to regulate my hormones as I would get severe cramping and vomit the first day of my period. loestrin and junel have been the two I have been on for this. i had no problems when on liestrin but switched Junel due to the cost and insurance. Does anyone have any info. for me or have you experienced the same thing?
