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.

I have been taking it for abotu a year now. At first, it induced migranes around the 2 week of a pack. I stopped taking the blue and white placebo pills though and I haven't had a migrane in a few packs. Like others, I have experienced irritability at the same time every month and have missed many periods.

Since i have started taking this medication I have been extremly depressed,angry,short tempered, helpless and downright blah. My MD prescribed this to me say its a low dosage and that i should have any side effects. Well, my PMS has been worse and I feel like I want to jump off the roof. Im going to call my doctor because I dont think im supposed to be feeling this way.

I started this BC pill on the first day of my period. I spotted through the month which is very annoying. I never had this problem with other BC pills. I was in a extreme foul mood for about 3 weeks, my breasts hurt like hell and have acne like a teenager on top of gaining weight. My period came on time with the first pack but now I haven't have one, which freaks me out wondering if I am pregn ... Show Full Comment
