Only gave a 4 star rating because not having anything kept me wondering if I'm pregnant or not. I've stop taking it for now to make sure. It is very very expensive and my insurance doesn't cover it so I'm considering switching ... Show Full Comment

This is a wonderful pill if you hate having or dealing with a period. I went almost 6 months on it, with no period. I have had stomach cramps and headaches with it though. Kept my skin clear too.
