Birth Control board


Hello, everyone! I haven't been around in awhile, but I really need some help now. I have another one of those BCP questions....I know, not another one! Well for anyone who can help, here goes....I am currently taking Microgestin 1.5/30 FE substituted for Loestrin 1.5/30 FE to control my progesterone levels, which while elevated leaves me dealing with severe panic attacks. I recently began being seen at the VA and they switched my pills to Levlen without any notice as to why. I need to know if Levlen is a low dose birth control or am I looking at having more side effects? Anyone who's used this type please let me know ASAP. I'm suppose to start the new pack Sunday, but I'd rather pay money to another doctor if it's gonna cause more problems again. Any information is greatly appreciated! Thanks to all in advance for reading and responding! Take care!
