Need help deciding which oral contraceptive

I don't know much about which brand of oral contraceptive I should use, partly due to nurses at planned parenthood not being very informative. Since there are many MANY different brands I figured I would just shout out my ultimate dream pill and see what suggestions you guys can give me. Smile I want a pill that won't lower my libido and increases breast size. Some have taken me from a b to a d, some only half a cup. Would love that extra boob again lol thanks guys!**also I tend to get a little emotional so I'm not too sure where to go from here.

Welcome to e health forum.

There is nothing called as a Perfect hormonal contraceptive.

All hormonal contraceptive methods (including oral pills) carry various forms of side effects and some women experience severe effects while others have minimal issues.

The most common side effects of any form of hormonal contraceptives include
1. Menstrual irregularities , Spotting.
2. premenstrual syndrome,
3.. headache ,migraine,
4. Breast pain, tenderness OR discomfort,
5. nausea, vomiting and
6. abdominal pain, discomfort and / or tenderness.
7. weight gain

The possibility that a individual user has specific side effect is highly variable.

In addition, if one combination of pill does not work, you may need a different pill with varying dosage or medication.

You should consult your doctor who can examine you and provide a proper pill for you.

I hope this helps.
