    I have been taking Jolessa since 2009. I have not had a period (more than an hour or two of light spotting), in those four years. EXCEPT, when for a three month period, I tried Quasense, as Jolessa was on extended back order. I bled for three months straight with Quasense.

    I have only taken Jolessa for 8 days, as of today, after taking Seasonique for 5+ years satisfactorily. My only complaint about Seasonique was the cost even with insurance and with the new health care act that fully covers certain birth control now, I was simply looking for a less expensive, yet just as effective option. ($0 versus $150/3mos. is quite a difference!) However, I seem to be having so ... Show Full Comment

    Love this birth control. Switched to this birth control 5 years ago after having trouble with another and this one has been life changing. I experienced spotting the first few cycles I took Jolessa as my body needed time to adapt but ever since then I have experienced lighter periods only 4 times a year! I feel great and it has actually improved my quality of life...I can't imagine having a pe ... Show Full Comment
