Experience

I like Junel 1.5/30 pretty well. Nothing too bad side effects wise (although I also take medication for anxiety and depression so it’s possible those effects could be zeroed out by that). For about 9 months, I tried taking it constantly without the off-week (to skip periods) and that made me really nauseous each month, unfortunately. I’ve been back to taking it for a regular cycle at a time now for about 6 months, and the nausea has gone away. All in all a pretty good pill. It was the first and only pill I ever tried.
