After three weeks I started spotting. Spotting has continued for two weeks and shows no signs of stopping. Started this pill to have only four periods a year which is not possible now that the spotting is longer than the normal period. Also, have had serious mood related issues as well as hunger and fatigue issues while on this medication. Works as a birth control pill, but not as a good weigh ... Show Full Comment

I take my pills every evening, and the nausea sticks around until about noon the next day, if not longer. I've also experienced migraines for the past week, it has affected my sleep (I haven' ...
