This is my first and last month with this pill.

Comment:
I have been taking this pill for only two months, but I can already tell I don't like it. I already talked to my Dr. about switching. I noticed within the first two weeks of starting this pill I started getting big pimples. I haven't had pimples like that since middle school. I also noticed that I was getting a lot of cramping, pretty much every single day I took the pill and I usually nev ... Show Full Comment
