    I have been on Jolessa for about a year. It's as easy to use as any bcp but my period isn't any lighter and usually I have heavy spotting,like my period, during the active months. Actually I'm on here trying to find a different pill...

    I normally get my prescription refilled at Wal-Mart and when I last got it refilled, they switched on me yet again. The first time they switched was when I was on Seasonale. They switched me to the generic brand Quasense, which caused no problems. The first week of taking Jolessa I had tenderness in one nipple.

    I have been taking Seasonale/jolessa for a few years now. I've always had break-through bleeding about a week before my actual period, so it last for more like two weeks. Just recently (possibly due to already being depressed), my depression and anxiety has been extremely amplified. It lists angry and frustration - I was literally lashing out over THEE smallest thing.

    I wouldn't exactly know if this birth control has been effective seeing as I use a condom every time I have intercourse, but I assume it would be just fine. My major complaint is bleeding. I usually had very light periods lasting less than four days. When on Yaz (on Yaz/Yasmin for approximately three years before making the switch), I just skipped the placebo pills and continued on to the norm ... Show Full Comment

    I have just finished my first pack and am miserable. I have been bleeding for 8 weeks, sometimes light and sometimes extremely heavy. I have gained 10+ pounds, and will be talking to my doctor about switching.
