I've had two periods for the past two months I've been taking this birth control. I have also noticed that I am moody and depressed. I wish I read the reviews before I started taking it.

I have not had any of the side effects that are previously stated. If anything, my skin has cleared up more than ever. Downside, I do believe I have gained weight from it. Only times I have spotted are when I was late taking it. Either way, I am satisfied with this birth control.
