^ Sabi sis ALthea is a cheaper version ng yasmin, same na same lang daw yun. I tried althea for 2 mos lang ata hindi ko nagustuhan kasi parang dry skin ako dun. Anyways iba-iba naman yung effect nun.

hi mga sis! u know what before, i was using althea for my PCOS, ang effect sken parang mainitin ang ulo ko tska parang lging stress. then i stopped. after i gave birth to my 1yr and 2 months old baby girl to date, my OB gave me diane 35. So far, ok naman. For almost a year of using, siguro mga 3-4 times lang akong ngka-pimples at isa isa p and before pkong mgkaroon after the whole pack.

2 months na ako gumagamit ng althea..wala naman akong nakikita na masamang effect sa akin..hindi naman sumasakit ang ulo ko..ok naman sex life ko..ok din ang skin ko..kaso these past few days, nagiging irritable ako masyado..palaging mainit ang ulo..kaya palagi kami ngkakasagutan ni hubby kasi naiinis na sya bakit daw sobrang mainit ang ulo ko eh hindi naman ako ganito dati..napaisip tuloy ako nung nabasa ko mga posts nyo..baka yun ang effect sa akin ng althea.. ??? >:(

darating na si hubby ng november kaya need ng gumamit ng pills again. sabi ng OB ko dapat 1 month before. may mens na ako kaya magtake na ako today. althea and diane user din ako pero dahil mas mura althea yun ang mas ginamit ko. Madalas sumakit ulo ko kaya sa gabi ko ito tinitake. pero this balak kong bumalik na sa Diane kasi wala akong nararamdamang side effects.

Im using althea for 2 months also, mas mura kasi.. im not using it para maging safe, im using it para sa effect sa hair and skin.. minsan nakakalimutan ko uminom.. at minsan wala na akong regla pag umiinom ako.. Masama kaya yun?

I don't like althea because I gained weight while on it and I got some pimples in the process.
