Question about Lo Ovral 28...?
I am about to start taking birth control for the first time and my doctor gave me Lo Ovral 28. I wanted to know what other people have thought of this type and their positive and negative experiences with it, such as what were the positive and negative side effects. Any input helps! Thank you. Asked by Suzan Stow 4 months ago.

First of all, everyone reacts differently to birth control due to their body chemistry. So my experience might be totally different that what yours will be. I used Lo Ovral 28 for nearly 5 years. I never experienced any adverse side effects and it worked like a charm (still kid free!). Then one day I went to pick up my prescription and they had changed the tablet to a mint flavored chewable, with the option of still swallowing it whole. I didn't like chewing it up so I continued to take the tablet whole and the new flavoring gave me terrible heartburn. I had to switch to a different brand of birth control. I would say give it about 3 months though, and see how your body reacts to the medicine. Answered by Cassidy Shumiloff 4 months ago.

I am currently on Lo Ovral right now, and I've been on it for 4 months. Before this, I was on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo for a year, and I had breakthrough bleeding. Since being on Lo Ovral, I feel nauseous the first couple of days when I start a new cycle of pills, and I cramp pretty much the whole month. However, I have been known to be sensitive to medications, so it could be just me. Answered by Derek Drewett 4 months ago.

I have used Lo/Ovral in the past and I had pretty good results with it as far as minimal side effects. However, I didn't find that it altered my periods other than to make them less painful. Answered by Mozella Palis 4 months ago.

If you have taken it or even the generic version which is Cryselle-28.. What side effects occured? My insurance company won't pay for my ortho tri-cyclen lo, which worked wonders for me. Which is ridiculous to me because they paid in full my teen pregnancy without a problem, but when I try to be responsible they won't help me. But thats a different story. I was just wondering the side effects anyone else has had? Please let me know Answered by Rico Siena 4 months ago.

I have taken Lo/Ovral in the past and had very few side effects with the medication. Because you did well with the Ortho-Tricyclen Lo I would recommend asking your doctor if they have samples of the medication. If they don't you can ask your doctor if they would be willing to help you with the insurance to explain to them why this medication works better for you than the other choices that they offer. Answered by Marcela Stiefel 4 months ago.

I was on Lo-Ovral continuously (no periods) for three years. I gained weight. But I figured the weight gain was because my activity level declined due to several abdominal hernia-repair surgeries. I had this theory that there was a connection somehow between the continuous BCP use and my extreme abdominal bloating/swelling. I'd look 7 months pregnant at times. For real. The my doctor switched me to Lupron injections, which puts the body into a fake menopause. It was horrible. More weight. Not only did the endo come back with a vengence & worse than ever after the 6-month ordeal, but it made me VERY depressed. Like really really badly depressed. I've learned this is a common side-effect of GNrH inhibitor therapy like Lupron shots. So I went back onto Lo-ovral, continuous. Started exercising, and lost a lot of weight. Not every pound gained since starting LoOvral, but I don't mind so much -- because I spared myself those horrible periods. Seems like anytime there's play with hormones, one way or other the body weight is altered. Good luck to you. Answered by Woodrow Hotter 4 months ago.


Was anyone here taking Pfizer's Lo/Ovral-28 birth control pills?
I'm curious because that was a big headline today on the news.Pfizer has recalled about 1 million packets of Lo/Ovral-28 and its generic equivalent after a manufacturing mix-up led to about 30 packets, according to Pfizer estimates, being distributed with the pills out of order.

I have migraines and told the doctor about them and she said I will be fine, but she doesn't know how my body will react to these. I was on the pill long ago and had migraines then too, does that mean since I've been on them before 10 years ago with no problems I can get on them now and be fine? Im almost 35 and most of the side effects happen to wemon 35 and older...I need advice. Has anyone ever heard of some dieing from the pill? Answered by Tanisha Lull 4 months ago.

i haven't heard of anyone dying, but you can have too high of a dosage. headaches are a side effect of a too low prescription or too high. ask them to start you off low, then work your way up to where your period is predictable Answered by Demetra Gildow 4 months ago.

Your body is supposed to be regulating your hormones, this is how you were designed. Often the pill is used to force periods to be regular. I’ve seen all kinds of nasty side effects, including weight, and hair growth on your face, from small nuisances, to women whose entire life is messed up forever like loosing their uterus. The pill can be very dangerous. I get suicidal on it. When I was choosing a bc method, I researched them all. What I came up with was the diaphragm. It works without hormones so you don't end up with these huge Natzi hormones overthrowing and controlling your natural cycle. It's like a female condom, you can't feel or see it and neither can he. You put a little spermacide on the rim, which seals it and kills any trouble makers. If you follow directions as to how to use it and do so exactly, it's as effective as the pill, on the pregnancy part, perhaps better. The doctor will fit you to get the right size and to show you how to put it in and remove it. It's easier than to remember to take a pill everyday when you’re not gonna have sex everyday. You just have to remember it when you’re going to have sex. If you forget it, of course it doesn’t work at all. If periods are an issue regarding sex, it won't be anymore. The diaphragm holds the blood over night. It was my favorite bc method. However like the pill, it doesn't protect against std's, or the possibility of getting a disease that will kill you.

I've been on Lo/Ovral and found that it could cause weight gain, but that was mostly water. It was caused because of the hormones in the medication. I would recommend checking with your doctor as well to see what they say. Answered by Theo Waltzer 4 months ago.

Answered by Mendy Dine 4 months ago.

There is nothing special about the ingredient in ovral-28, its a very commonly used contraceptive ingredient (ethinyl estradiol, though it has other names). This ingredient very occasionally causes photo-sensitivity reactions. The result would be brown blotches on exposed skin through a hyper-pigmentation reaction. Interestingly, the same warning does not appear on ovral-28 instructions. It might be sensible to use uv protection on your face. Or if you are less angst about it, then wait and see, and use uv protection if you see any darkening appearing. Answered by Adina Cagey 4 months ago.

There is only one method of birth control that is is 100% effective, totally safe, and has no side effects, and that is to have your cords clipped. One can hum and haw and shuck and jive, but as the Spanish would tell you, "La verdad es La verdad (the truth is the truth). Answered by Taneka Gurule 4 months ago.
