I love this birth control however, I never got a period with this birth control. My face was clear. I took this all throughout high school. I ended up switching only because I have sex a lot and me and my bf agreed I should switch because I wasn't getting a period and it's not normal for a woman to not get a period.

Used for 6 months now - best birth control pill so far! This is the third brand/type of birth control I have ever been on and it has worked really well for me. My acne, which was getting bad on my other birth control, is now all clear on Zarah. After my second month on Zarah, my skin became clear and glowing.

I've began taking a new pill which I cannot remember the name of but I have now realized how many PROBLEMS I actually ... Show Full Comment

I have been on birth control since age 16. I went from Yasmin to yaz, to ocella to now, zarrah. I am 24 now.

I went to a new obgyn, he said that I didn't have to have a period and the night sweats were from the hormones. It has been almost 3 months since ... Show Full Comment

Best birth control pill I've ever been on. I'm in my 40's and a few years ago started with Yasmin and then moved to the generic Ocella. Now my insurance company has moved to Zarah and it agrees with me the best for clear skin, weight regulation; mood, and libido. All good.
