Side effects of Loestrin 24

I just started taking Loestrin 24FE on Sunday. My question for those of you taking it is when should I start to experience the 'wonderful' side effects (I know everyone is different and not all women will have the same feelings)? Does the nausea/headaches/diarrhea start right away, or does it take a few days/weeks for it to build up?
Just curious as to what, and when, other women have experienced so I can get some sort of a clue as to what to expect.

Re: Side effects of Loestrin 24

Hi there. This is my second month on Loestrin 24 Fe and I really haven't had any terrible side effects. I take the pill mid-morning so that I have food in my stomach already, so I haven't experienced any nausea. Some days I get a bit sleepy mid-day, but I can't really say if that's from the pill or not. The only other thing I've noticed is my breasts are a bit sore, one more so than the other, but it's nothing unbearable. Good luck!

Re: Side effects of Loestrin 24

I was on Loestrin Fe24 for about 4 months before the negative side effects started to take place. Almost immediately though, my breasts got bigger, which I didn't mind too much. However after about 4 months, I was getting very irritated at the slightest things, angry at my son and my fiance for almost no reason at all. I would cry pretty much everyday and that is soo not like me! So we sat down and tried to figure out what had changed in the last six months and all we could come up with was the new birth control. So we did an experiment. I decided to be off birth control totally for a month to see how I felt. Within a few days I started to feel drastically different, so much better. And since then I switched to Low Ogestrel (generic for Lo-Ovral) and haven't had any problems, except this month some weird breast growth that came out of no where. Any way, I hope this helps. Just keep an eye our for things out of the ordinary and good luck!
