    Let me preface this by saying I have only been on Quasense for about a month. This is the first form of bc I've used. Before Quasense my periods were horrible. The first day was spent throwing up until there was nothing in me but bile, with cramps that were so terrible I could not move. I had headaches for the week leading up to my period, and hot flashes for the week that followed my period. ... Show Full Comment

    I was on ortho tri-cyclen for a year until my doctor decided to switch my birth control because I was having extremely irregular periods. (I was prescribed Jolessa, but my pharmacy gave me Quasense instead because that was what my insurance covered and my doctor said that it wouldn't make a difference.) So far I am absolutely hating this stuff. I'm four months in, and I have nothing but co ... Show Full Comment

    Quasense = terrible. I have been on Seasonale for 3+ years (also 4 periods/yr), and when I went to fill my prescription this time around, the pharmacy gave me Quasense because it was covered by my insurance and they had discontinued Seasonale in the U.S. I gave it a shot because I figured it couldn't be much different, but boy was I wrong. I experience major mood swings (my husband was scared ... Show Full Comment

    I had switched from ortho tri-cyclen because I didn't want to get a period every month. My doctor suggested Quasense and I absolutely love it. The only downside is I gained a few pounds, but I was never skinny to begin with so I don't mind. As for effectiveness of the product, it definitely works as a birth control & my periods are lighter and shorter when I get it. It's easy to ta ... Show Full Comment
