    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. However, in the last two months, I've experienced daily spotting and severe acne. It also made me really moody! I will be trying Apri, using it for 3 months in a row to skip my periods. Hopefully it will work well...

    Every birth control is different for every different person. I love this BC. During my very first pack I did get the 2 week period. My doctor said I was fine. I never had any problems with bleeding afterwards. However, my period tends to start on Thursday of the placebo pills and last only 4 days. Overall love it! The only downside is never having tampons with never having my period! I always forg ... Show Full Comment
