I've been on this birth control for the past five weeks. Every day, I've had light bleeding (enough to where I had to use panty liners). Apparently, this is "normal." Fine. What isn't normal is the HORRIBLE mood swings. I'm a pretty happy-go-lucky person and now, my fifth week in, I'm borderline depressed. I don't want to do anything I normally loved doing. I want ...

I have been on Seasonique for a year now and I am getting off of it. My experience has not been too good. The first 3 months were not good and it got better.
