    I have been taking Seasonique now for almost three months. Everything was perfect, now two weeks before I am to start my period I began lightly spotting then bleeding to the point I had to use a tampon. I also had low grade cramps for the majority of the three months. I also recently shed my uterine lining. It was severe and huge. I actually thought it was part of my tampon, but it wasn't. I& ...

    I have been taking this pill for just over three months now. My wedding is in a few weeks and I thought this would be perfect to make sure I don't end up with my period the day of the wedding. Instead my skin is breaking out like i junior high school student and I have had my period for 2 full weeks now with no signs of an end. My thoughts were simple; no period for 3 months how great too bad ... Show Full Comment

I think that may be why I have gained the ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on this and only this and it's sister BCP, seasonale, for about 5yrs! I have never had spotting or any other troubles with it. The reason that I got on it was because I was having a full period every other week. It was worth the change and the only thing I have to say is it does take over half the week to have my period.
