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

I was very please with this pill. I have been on it for 3-5 years now. I am 28 and I am noticing that I am having more side effects then normal. I have horrible mood swing, ovary pain that comes and goes, acne, always tired and weak and bad eating habbits. I am going to stop taking this pill.
