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

I began taking this pill 2 1/2 months ago on the first day of my period. My periods are usually 24-26 days apart, last 3-4 days and are not heavy, but I haven't had one since I started taking this pill. When I nearing the end of the 1st pack, I had a normal amount of cramping and thought my period was starting, but it never did. At the end of the 2nd pack I had more cramping and a tiny bit o ...

I have been feeling tired, slightly depressed, my mood swings are out of control, I have breast tenderness, I also have bad acne which never ever happens to me, and although my period is gone I am expierencing cramping. I also seem to be having shortness of breathe and mild c ... Show Full Comment

This is the first birth control I've been on (started at 17, now 18 y/o). I started in August, so it's been almost 8 months. I had a regular period the first month, and haven't had one since. Quite nerve-wracking at first, but eventually I got used to it. It seems as though a lack of a period is common on this pill so I'm not too worried. I did go through a bit of depression during ...
