I read the user review page about the pill- but I was wondering specifically about OTC-lo? Anyone that took it, did you experience a lot of weight gain and increased acne? Also, is weight gain caused by water retention, or is it actual fat gain?
Also, different question- I am taking antibiotics for acne (a form of minocycline) and I know that antibiotics lower the effectiveness of the pill. Do antibiotics make the pill useless? or only lower the effectiveness by a little? Also- would antibiotics make Plan B less effective also?
I am on that pill right now. I was switched to it after having an extremely hard time with Yasmin. I hate both pills. Yes, the protection is great, as well as shorter periods... but the pain SUCKS. I am going back to condoms. I am so depressed, moody, and stressed from this pill that it is affecting mine and my fiance's relationship. I snap for no reason. Just a head's up even though everyone is different. Oh and I gained 25 lbs from it.
