I hated this medication. I was bleeding 3-4 weeks at a time and only getting a break from the bleeding ever week or so. I was on it for a year and I decided that was time enough to give it a chance for the break through bleeding to end. I would not recommend this for anyone who had irregular periods before taking this medication.

I have been on this BCP for 6 wks. I bled for the first two & 1/2 wks straight, now am bleeding again. Have no interest in sex whatsoever. Still having terrible migraines.

Yeah, probably the stupid pills. Th ... Show Full Comment
