    I personally love this product! I have been on it since June 2007. I recommend it for people who have a crazy schedule and don't remember to take the pill every day at the same time. I have my card that reminds me when I need to have it replaced. It is Great! I did not have a period the first 6 months I was on it. Then I went back to once a month but the perk is I will only spot for a day mayb ... Show Full Comment
