    I was really emotional when I started it but stuck with it to see if it would sort itself out. Ive gained a lot of weight but I cant be too sure it was just because of levlen and I've also been told it can cause you to retain a lot of water.

    Do you think it did level out? How long did it take?

    I think it did but I did start it 3 months after giving birth so my hormones were all over the place. I think it was about a month. If you think its not agreeing with you go back to the doctor and talk about an alternative?

    I've been back on it for 3 months now and have booked an appointment next week to change. The week before and week of my period I feel like I'm in the first trimester of pregnancy again- sore boobs, nauseated (to the point of vomiting a couple of times), extreme fatigue, mood swings- you name it, I've got it (I've even done hpt and blood test because I was sure I was pregnant). I thought it was just my body getting used to been back on the pill but after 3 months I'm over it.

    Yeah I think a visit with gp is in order. I don't think it's agreeing with me. What a waste of money!!!

    This is very similar to me. Problem is that I feel like that without the pill from until I get my period. Like morning sickness due to endometriosis. The pill is supposed to help me not make it worse.

    I was on Levlen for about 4 months & had terrible mood swings - I just couldn't cope with it. I changed to Marvelon & it was great for me - was on it for probably 2-3 years. I was taking it to help with endometriosis too. Good luck - it is a horrible thing when you're taking something to help & it just causes more problems!

    I've been on it for about 3 weeks. I was very nauseous for the first 2 weeks or so & still randomly now. Thinking more about it I've also had tender breasts & bloating. I'm thinking of stopping it when my period is due. I have endo too but I don't know if it's worth it & I want to lose weight before we TTC again.

    I didn't take it today. I still feel a bit crap...I had found a lump in my breast too. Now I'm thinking it might be related.
