Jolessa Birth Control
kdcc1830 posted:
I started taking Jolessa birth control just about 3 months ago. This is one of those that makes you only have 4 periods a year. I took it for about a month and a half and was sick the entire time. I was nauseous, had headaches and muscle aches and even had a period of sorts. I stopped taking the pills and right after I stopped taking them I had the longest period I have ever had in my life. About 3 weeks after that I started spotting and my doctor gave me ortho tri cyclin. Since I was spotting I figured I was getting back on track and started taking the new pills on Sunday, but the spotting stopped that day. I am having some cramping and my breasts are really tender and for all intense and purposes seems like I am having a period but I am not. How long should it take my system to return to normal after taking the Jolessa and should I stop taking the other birth control for the time being?
