I have been on Balziva for a year or 2 and haven't had any problems. I was on orthotricyclen, brand and generic, before and started having spotting after intercourse so my gyno switched me. On the Balziva I've had very light periods which do last about a week and I too get very VERY emotional the day before I start my period.

I need some information I am on Balziva birth controls. I do take them on a regular but not at the same time. Does that make it more of a risk of getting pregnant.

I've been on Balziva for about 5 years now, and I love it. My periods are very light, although they do last for 7 days (same as before I started the pill).
