    I am on my 4th week and I have not stopped bleeding. It's very heavy, clots and the cramps are unbearable. I will be calling to get on something different.

    I have only been on this pill for not even a month and I have never been so depressed in my life. I liked the concept of only getting a period once every 3 months, but it is not worth the way it makes you feel emotionally.

    HATE THIS DRUG!! I got switched from another generic due to my pharmacy. Since I switched six months ago, I have gained weight like crazy (30 pounds), and have not had a period. I would like to have a period every three months, that way I know I am not prego. So, I end up spending a ton of money on pregnancy tests. Hate this pill! I am going back on Nuvaring. It was awesome!

    I have been on a generic form of Seasonale for years, usually Jolessa and I was told it was unavailable from the distributor by my pharmacist. So they switched me to Introvale. This is my fourth month on it and I do not like it. I have horrible acne on my forehead and chin both spots where I have never had skin problems before, and it makes me hyper sensitive. Hoping the other generic form is bett ... Show Full Comment
