Discussions that mention levlen

Women's Health board

I originally started taking birth control for my periods. I had taken Levlen for a year before when I switched. When I first started taking Levlen I was emotional for the first three months while I was getting used to it. I wouldn't have known this had my boyfriend not pointed it out. Besides that there wasn't any side effects. Anyways I moved from a big city to a small town at the beginning of this year and when I needed more Levlen I went into the doctor to get some more. They switched me to Portia. Both have the same major active ingredient so I thought it would be fine. The medicine is now in my system and I've been a bit more moodier than usual (about as moody as I get when I get my period). I think it might be because the formula might be a little different. I was wondering if anyone has had this happen to them or if anyone knows anything about it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :D
