Periods lasting approx 1week after several months of no periods. Cramps and tender breasts during months I dont get my period. Knew what to expect since Doctor gave me the pill form to try for 3-4 months to see how my body would react.

I have had it for 8 months, I have not had a period this entire time, I really like that however I do get cramps and moody when I normally should have it. I had problems with the pill and being nauseated and this does not cause that at all!

Comment:
It made my breast fill up with milk (then it would go away and come back), got me very depressed, and a 15 lb. increase in weight in 4 months. I had it taken out within 5 months of having it placed and all sypmtoms went away except the weight. I never got a period while on this medication.

Extreme change in menstruation. Menstrating for months at a time and with a very heavy flow. I used to have 3 day periods that were fairly light. I wasn't expecting this! Well, I shouldn't complain, I'm not pregnant!! But, then again, when would I have a chance to get pregnant?! :)
