Experience

I was on Loestrin for years and had no issues. Then it was discontinued and I was put on Gedarel 30/150 and I want to change as soon as I can! I have gained weight despite exercising more and have a complete loss of sex drive and well and dryness. My mood has gotten worse and I just feel bloated all the time. Would not recommend.
