Comment:
I was concerned about starting Safyral after reading some of the reviews here, but have been pleasantly surprised by how easy my transition onto it has been. I was not on any contraceptive previously, and when I started my Safyral regimen my ONLY side effect was very light spotting for the first month.

Now after my 6 month on this pill I am seriously considering stopping ... Show Full Comment

I am a first time Safyral user and I am thinking about stopping. I am now on day 14 of my period. My doctor says it's normal, but I don't feel that it is! This is crazy!!!
