Experience

Jencycla is a great pill! (At least for me). My gynecologist prescribed it because I have a history of high blood pressure. I don’t have any placebo pills, so I don’t necessarily get my period every single month. When I first began taking it, my period was very irregular. It lasted an extended amount of time. But then it stopped altogether and I didn’t have a period for months, which was bliss. I haven’t noticed any changes in my weight or skin since taking the pill. I do get headaches, but I don’t know if they’re related to the pill or not. In all, I would recommend this brand to those who need to take the mini pill for any reason.
