This pill has been a disaster for me. I have been taking it for three months and I have been bleeding for three months! My doctor says give the pill a chance but I am so discouraged, angry and frustrated. I am switching pills after I finish my third pack I can't take it anymore I am miserable, moody and I want to cry all the time. I hope others have a more pleasant experience than I did.

When I first started thinking about birth control to not only prevent pregnancy but to regulate my periods as well, I chose this because it's chewable and I have a tough time swallowing pills. I have just started this pill a little over three months ago and it has been hell.. I've had breakthrough bleeding for 10 days and then I would get a heavy flow like my actual period.
