I have been on Seasonique for 12 weeks and the bleeding started at week 3 and never stopped. I bleed heavy every day and feel very bloated. I was on Kariva before and loved it. My periods would only last 3 days. This should never have been approved and physicians should educate their patients on the heavy bleeding that last for months. It's not spotting by any means. I can't wait to get of ... Show Full Comment

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 would not recommend this for anyone who had irregular periods before taking this medication.

I recently started taking Seasonique after having been on loestrin for a number of years. The first 4 weeks were great - no symptoms at all. Then in my fifth week, I began spotting. Then the spotting got heavier. Then I started bleeding like a regular period and I have now been bleeding for the past 4 weeks straight. The last 2 weeks have been the worst. The bleeding is extremely heavy with ... Show Full Comment
