I love this Birth control I have been on it for almost two years. It is good. I take it everyday. I got spotting while regulating to it,but it had gotten better. The only Problem is not having a period every month makes my cramps horrible and my bleeding really heavy, But i'd rather that than switching a lot and be unprotected.

I was on ortho tri-cyclin before I started Jolessa. My gyno just switched me to this birth control so I would have lighter and less periods. I loved it until I got to the middle of the second pack.
