I am so happy I decided to look at these reviews, because I thought I was going crazy! I hate this pill! I've been on it for 2 months and I have experienced most of the symptoms that everyone is talking about here.

First couple of months I gained a few pounds and would feel nauseated when I ate, but after sticking too it it made my acne go away, the nausea went away and not I love it. Chewable and mint flavored which is a plus. Period is only 4 days and not too heavy which is important since I used to have heavy 8 day periods. Cramps during periods are almost nonexistent. Period comes at same time now. Also ... Show Full Comment
