Comment:
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. The only real beef I have with this birth control is that it seems pic ... 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.

Comment:
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
