I have been on this BC for 2-3 years. I LOVE only having 4 periods a year. Jolessa has reduced my menstral migraines, and no spotting/between periods (unless I miss a week of pills-Oops). Has beed effective when I miss AND double up doses -(however not recommended)

I was happy to start Jolessa due to the fact that I would only have 4 periods a year. I took it for 9 months and never had a problem with spotting or weight gain, but I had severe acne and was an emotional wreck. I would go from angry to crying in no time. I have always been a very laid back person, I am going to switch medications asap!

Took it for over a year and loved it. The cost was the only reason I stopped.
