Okay, so I am new to BCPs and I chose Seasonique because I like the ideaof having only 4 periods a year (for me it was a convience issue). I am 24, not sexually active, I don't have any pre-existing conditions, I normally have very light periods lasting 3 days, I don't have acne, and my cramps are managable with a heafty dose of Aleve. I work out on a regular basis. After reading all these ... Show Full Comment

Started taking this because I loved the idea of only four periods a year. When I had my period every month I could literally only sleep for 30-45 minutes at a time before I was running to the bathroom and I would experience cramps in my legs, lower back, and abdomen. Since taking Seasonique I sleep better at night when I have my period and my migraines are only a dull throb that I can live with.I ... Show Full Comment

i was put on this type of birh control because i have horrible periods. I am entering my 3rd month, so no period yet. But I am getting acne, not the normal pimple here and there, but on my kneck/face line. And it won't clear up. errrg. Same pimple for 2 weeks! yuck. Also its made me gassy. GasX is my new best friend. Love no period for 3 months...but thinking of going back to the ring.

Comment:
My doctor recommended that I take this not only for birth control but because of my severe migranes. I was previously on Yasmin. I am very happy with the fact that I only get a migrane 4 times a year instead of every month. I have noticed more pimples but I thought that might have been stress (just got married). Now that I read the other articles, I can honestly say it is because of the pills. Th ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I had been on Seasonale for several years when my doctor switched me to Seasonique, claiming it was "new and improved". Since I switched to Seasonique on June 1, 2008, I have had a period EVERY DAY SINCE JUNE 5th. (At the time of this posting, it was June 23rd). My doctor "claims" that this is normal; however, I have been on several different BCP's in my adult life and I ... Show Full Comment
