The tablets are easy to chew and taste pretty good-very minty. The only side effects I've had are acne for the first month which was pretty bad. I've had extreme cravings but I haven't gained weight and my mood swings are normal as usual. This is my first birthcontrol pill and I'm 18, and I've only finished one pack but overall I've had a good experience with it.

I've never had any problems with this birth control, at all. No weight gain, no mood swings, no acne, no side effects and no pregnancies! I also love that it's chewable and can be taken very discretely.

I'm on my fourth month of taking this pill and after reading all the negative comments, all I can say is everyone is different. I haven't had any of the side effects people are talking about and it's doing its job as birth control. My periods are much shorter and lighter, and best of all...i'm not pregnant! Set a reminder on your phone every day and it's easy to take. Just chew ... Show Full Comment

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.
