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

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

Comment:
I just started my 7th week of taking this. I started because the first day of my periods were absolutely debilitating; I would get uncomfortably bloated, go through super tampons like it was nothing, and experienced severe enough nausea that I would sometimes puke- even just the smell of food could set me off. Although I've just started Quasense, I'm a LOT less stressed out knowing that I ... Show Full Comment
