Microgestin Suspect of Friend's Near Death Blood Clots

Loestrin FE to Microgestin 1/20
1727views

I was really scared of switching birth controls since the LLF had worked so well so I made sure to pick Microgestin since it's made out of the same hormones, just a higher level than LLF. I didn't experience any side effects other than hot flashes, night sweats, and the inability to control my body temperature reg

Yes, I have had similar issues. I've been on microgestin for a month now & I'm extremely moody/sensitive. Loestrin was perfect for me and I hate that it's been discontinued.
