I have been on this BC for about 4 months now. I have had 2 UTI's and they have been severe. The first 2 months I had no side effects, other than loss of appetite which was GREAT, however I have not leveled out and started eating again, haven't gained any extra but haven't lost any extra either. I have not had any mood swings or anything like that. I did skip my periods for the last 2 ... Show Full Comment

I gained about 10lbs within the first month. Very 'heavy' spotting...very moody, no sex drive and my breasts have increased at least by 2 bra sizes...also very tender. I feel awful and will be stopping asap.

Comment:
While I didn't experience the severe acne breakouts that I got from Nuvaring and Depo...and I actually was appreciative of the nauseous feeling I had hours after taking the pill (because normally I gain weight on birth control)...

I am so glad to see that others have been missing their period on this because I have been taking this for almost a year now and the only time I have had a period was when I missed a pill. It works well, but always makes me nervous to not have a period.
