Apri is generic for Desogen & Ortho-Cept. I have taken all. In my case the side effects went away after the first month. I only had swollen breasts. After years of taking them I had to stop cause they were causing migraines.

I was on Ovcon 35 for a month then Loestrin FE 24 fro 7 months and I am back on Orthocept now. This is my second month and so far the only problem I had was a 2days of migraines during my period last month but I think it was a combo of my period and hurting my back at the gym. Before I would have migraines through the entire month.

Your body takes 3 months to get use to them. For some people a bit longer is required.
