I took this pill for about a month. I was told that I may experience spotting since I started taking mid cycle. I started spotting then bleeding which lasted continuous until I completely stopped this pill. At least 11 days. I agree this pill probably effects people differently. I, however, had horrible side effects. The bleeding was heavy and I had worse cramps than my normal period. I also belie ... Show Full Comment

Yea! No more periods. I started taking this after starting with Seasonique. You absolutely must take it at the same time every day. I cannot believe that I suffered through horrible PMS and periods all of these years. I was actually pondering a voluntary complete hysterectomy it was getting so bad. Last week I was in my closet and stumbled across my stack of boxes of tampons and pads I used ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I've been taking Lybrel for about 8 months and it's been wonderful! I started on this particular pill because my heavy periods have made me anemic so I need something that eliminates my period. I haven't had any bleeding or spotting since starting and haven't had any side effects at all. It's been great!

Comment:
I started Lybrel because I was tired of having periods, especially since experiencing increasingly heavy bleeding the past two years. The first month was fine, but then I had breakthrough bleeding everyday for over two weeks. After reading the literature, I stopped Lybrel for 3 days, and then continued. This seemed to do the trick, and I have not had any breakthrough or spotting episodes since. It ... Show Full Comment
