    I barely had any side effects taking this pill what I did like about taking this was that my period was very light! I never noticed anything different than how I usually was; no weight gain, normal mood swings before period, no headaches, no cramps. I would definitely recommend it. Of course it will affect everyone different.

    I started taking this pill about 8 months ago. I have always been on a low estrogen pill. With this pill I do not get a period which is great, however, I have had 15lbs weight gain, lots of water retention, extra swelling, always tired, and moody. I am on the last few days of my pill and going to see my DR so he can prescribe me a different one.

    Must be taken at the same time. I had severe side effects and my friends started to ask if I was doing okay. I had crazy mood swings and felt tired a lot. I spotted for all three months. I didn't get pregnant but the side effects were out of control. I couldn't stand this pill and it was too expensive, there is no generic brand.
