Please do your homework before starting! Guess what? Break through bleeding for 12 months! Now, after trying 3 other types of pills since then to try to get regulated, i haven't been able to have a normal period since starting the seasonique almost TWO YEARS ago.

Seasonique is Da Bomb! I've been taking it for 6 months, ever since my doctor slid me some free samples. I told him I didn't need them because I was taking generic Seasonale (Jolessa), but he told me to try them anyway. Wow, what a difference! No breakthrough bleeding at all! This stuff really works.

The first cycle I experienced some nausea. I have been spotting in the second cycle which is likely to occur according to the side effects. I am not happy with the spotting but I hope it will eventually improve as I take this pill.

It takes your body a bit of getting used to with the breakthrough bleeding. My doctor said usually about one cycle (3 months). I have been on this now for over a year and my periods have gone from 5 days to 1 1/2 at the max and very light at that. I highly recommend it to everyone.
