I have been on LoSeasonique for 6 months now, and I absolutely love it. I have lost 25-30 pounds since I started taking it, have only had two periods in the last six months, and no evident side effects. The ONLY downside for me is that it is so expensive! For one three-month pack it is $188 at my pharmacy, but when I started taking it there was a discount card given to me by my gyno, which made SI ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I really have enjoyed taking this medication. It never made me moody like past BC pills. I didn't notice weight gain unlike in the past, I even dropped a few pounds. A reason there are so many comments about bleeding is because it is a low dose. It may not be strong enough for some women, but for those of us who don't need it strong it works great! My periods have been lighter and I lov ... Show Full Comment

Then I began taking them again and lasted 3 weeks before nonstop spotting (nearly as heavy as a period) ... Show Full Comment

If you are hormone-sensitive, please read! I have tried every pill family on the market and my doctor recently prescribed loseasonique, as I have not yet tried this type. I have experienced not-so-pleasant side effects in the past from the other pills & nuva ring (severe acne, migraines, nausea, melasma, mood swings, fatigue), so I had high hopes for this one. I had been off pills completely f ... Show Full Comment

I am on my 4th week of LoSeasonique & I love it! I was a bit nervous about starting it because of all the bad things I had read online- but I have experienced very little side effects. I have a history of acne, and I can actually not take my acne medication anymore & just take this BC. I was supposed to begin my period on the 8th of this month- it's now the 13th & I have began spot ... Show Full Comment
