I started taking Jolessa because my doctor told me that is completely normal and okay for a woman to not have her period every month. This idea sounded wonderful to me.

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.

Jolessa is shit! Shame on you Teva for manufacturing this piece of shit! Bleeding for three months straight! Ladies, I switched to Quasense, which is the other Seasonale generic and it works so much better!
