  • Lovebeingamommy on Jan, 30, 2015:

    I am on my third week of the VYFEMLA birth control pills, my doctor only put me on them to try and get rid of my very painful ovarian cysts. My side effects have consisted of "having dreams" that i have lost my mind on these pills and in the dreams i start to find out other people have lost their minds on the pills too. One too many dreams for me also, i have (in real life) gained a quick 5 lbs and i haven't gained weight in 5 years, and no i'm NOT pregnant i repeat i'm not pregnant. So i'm getting switched back to my old pills tomorrow.
