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.

Last week I was in my closet and stumbled across my stack of boxes of tampons and pads I used ... Show Full 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 was on Mircette to control long/heavy periods and was switched to Lybrel about 1 1/2 years ago to control the menstrual migraines. It did seem to lessen the frequency of the migraines, but I have experienced frequent bleeding...much heavier than the spotting I expected. It finally was progressing to a constant "period-like" blood flow for the past couple of months. I also noticed my ... Show Full Comment
