I was on this pill for three months but my doctor switched me to minastrin because of break through bleeding. I took that for less than a month and couldn't deal with it.

Ive been taking lo loestrin for a year now and love it! i have no side effects other than not getting my period which is proven to help prevent different types of cancer. I dont have mood swings, bloating, or acne anymore. I took loestrin 24 for two years and had the same results.
