I found myself extremely emotional while on this pill. I had emotional crying fits like I never had before. I also had weight gain, ten pounds despite my 3 mile runs etc. I was on this pill for 5 months and I am going to try something different now.

I had irregular period for 2 months, the third month I missed a pill by half a day and this triggered a period. On month 4, week 4 and ... Show Full Comment

I use it for birthcontrol and heavy periods. I've been on it for 4 months now, the first 3 months I had irregular periods, but this month I havnt had one at all. The first few weeks I had upset stomach and nausea and once it went away I have had no more side effects. I honestly don't even know I am on birth control, ZERO side effects. I've actually been losing weight too not gaining. I ... Show Full Comment
