    I've been on this for 2 months and I am pretty satisfied. My period is extremely light (2 days of light spotting). I haven't had any weight gain. The only "cons" of this birth control is I do get a few pimples around the time of my period and I do get noticeably bloated, but those things aren't a big deal. The only real beef I have with this birth control is that it seems pic ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on this Medication since March/2012. I have had terrible bleeding all the time. The medicine is VERY expensive and alot to pay out of pocket. Also I stay tired, mad and constantly having some sort of bleeding happening. Also I have gained over 10 pounds with this pill and I continuously work out and eat healthy. I have been on different B/C pills since I was 16 so its been a little ove ... Show Full Comment

    I gained so much weight right after starting this pill. Water retention was horrible (more than 10 lbs, mostly in the abdominal and thigh area). My cravings for food (especially sweets) was unbearable. I was also tired all the time, and I was taking naps several times during the day. Basically, all I could do was sleep and eat. Overall I had a bad experience on this BC and have stopped taking it.

    This birth control was awful for me. It was the first pill I have ever taken. I am a very happy person, but on this bcp I do not feel like myself. My fiancé even noticed this change. My headaches are worse, I cry over the smallest things and my sex drive is non existent. Plus, I have three weeks of bleeding and one week off. My periods were normal before starting this bcp but not anymore. I a ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on this birth contol for 4 months. In the begining i had bad headaches but they have subsided. I did not get any acne. It has prevented pregnancy. Also my periods are extremely light and i have had no weight gain. So far so good. Also im 23 and been taking birth control since i was 16 and this one so far is the best one.
