    I am on my 7th month. for the first 6.5 months I had severe Acne and I have never had it in my life!! It is finally easing off and my skin is clearer. I have had no periods at all a little bit of brown spotting the first 2 months. Now I am having cramping pains and have felt like this for 2 weeks I might call the doctor just to c if its ok. Overall I love it it is foolproof
