I've been taking this medication for a little over a year, and I absolutely love, love, love it!

I've taken a lot of different brands, but this one made my skin beautiful, my periods lighter, a ... Show Full Comment

I have been using this for about a year and a half and have not experienced anything different from a regular birth control pill. I've even noticed that my periods only last about 4 days and are very light. I also rarely have spotting, and it is usually due to stress when I do. I love only having 4 periods a year!
