First off, I'm 24 and have been on birth control for 8 years. So this review is not coming off of inexperience. I've always suffered from heavy bleeding and unbearable cramps. So, my doctor prescribed me this birth control and gave me 3 months of samples to see if I liked it. Currently, I'm off birth control for this month because it was too expensive with my insurance. But, being ... Show Full Comment

As long as it does its job, i'm ha ... Show Full Comment

I feel great and the same as I did bef ... Show Full Comment
