I started this pill regime (Quasense) on May 15, 2010. My scheduled period was June 12 but since I started the pills, I should have not gotten my period. Well, I got my period on June 12 (my wedding day). It was light during my honeymoon. I noticed that I was more tired than ever and my eyes were extremely dry. My period became heavier the following week and I have been on my period ever since.... ... Show Full Comment

I'm on my 3rd cycle into the 2nd month (Been on it almost a year). At first, I had my early bleeding/period but my doctor recommended I stop for a week to have my period 1 week into the third month. I have not yet actually gone the full 3 months without starting my period early. This birth control also messes with my hormones and makes me very irratable, sometimes depressed. I love not having ... Show Full Comment
