I haven't experience any of the symptoms the other people have described in terms of crying all the time or moodswings.

I don't recommend this me ... Show Full Comment

This was the first pill i was ever on. And i have to say it was horrible. after the first pill, the next morning i woke up with severe dizziness and i started vomiting. Also, my period normally lasts 4 days, and its not too heavy after the first day. I was going through ultra tampons ALL WEEK, in about 1 to 2 hours. i dont recommend this pill to anyone.. I switched after 2 weeks.
