Hi girls! I will be switching to either Levlite, Alesse or Loestrin next week.
Before I talk to my doctor I would like to hear everyones experiences with them.

1. Most importantly, did you gain weight? if so, how much?
2. Did you notice any change in your sex drive?
3. Did it improve, worsen acne?
4. Does it help with bloating/cramps?

Thanks so much! I always appreciate everyones responses to my millions of questions! :]

I've not been on any of these pills. I'm also not familiar with Levlite. However, I know that Alesse and Loestrin are high-androgen pills, which would be good for sex drive, but bad for acne. You might try something lower in androgens like Ovcon-35, Brevicon, or Modicon. Androgens are male hormones. Any pill can make you gain or even lose weight. Everybody is different and, unfortunately, it's trial and error. As for the bloating and cramps, I know I'm less crampy on the pill than not. I take Brevicon. Hope I helped, good luck. :)
