Any Comments On Levlite ( Low Estrogen ) Birth Control

I am 21 and I was taking ortho try-cyclen lo for about a year and a half or more. I stopped taking it about three months ago and realized that my mood was completely different. I mean I do know that the estrogen amount can mess up your moods and emotions, so I was just going to see a doctor about taking a low dose estrogen birth control. My friend had mentioned to me levlite. It is only 20 mcg. And the ortho was 35. I am wondering if my body will counteract with the big difference, but I have been off it for three months. Any comments please respond

It is very effective with least side effects like mood swings and weight gain.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
