I have put my 18 and 16 yr old daughters on this. No problems. Have been on for over a year. They love it. Almost no periods. No weight gain, but they exercise and swim alot and watch what they eat. I would recommend this to any mother!

After several years of depo provera jabs I thought this would provide an even better solution ie no periods and no jabs! I have had about 16 months with very few symptoms but in the last few months have gained weight (not much and this could be too much chocolate!) and over the last few months my periods have returned to pre pill/depo days.

I find this form of birth control to be extremely effective. I have had it for 7 months. My boyfriend and I are really bad about using condoms and I haven't gotten pregnant. The only downside is that I have spotting a lot but never more than 1 panty liner per day.
