Comment:
I am on the placebo pills with my first pill pack and I am absolutely miserable. I knew their would be side effects, but not as intense as I have been having. I have had spotting/bleeding since week 2,and I'm moody. It has pretty much done the complete opposite of what I was told it would do for me. I was told it would help with cramps,and I have had horrible cramps (worse than when I was not ... Show Full Comment

This pill works great for me! I have had not many side effects. My period lasts 2 days and is much lighter with very little cramping.

Started this pill about 6 months ago. Was happy with my previous pill but it became too expensive. The cramps with this pill are bad, but not as bad as I've had on no pill. This pill makes me terribly moody! Also have noticed a little weight gain and increase in boob size.

I am 25 and have tried pills before and had raging mood swings. I was 18 and my body wasn't prepared for it. Now this little miracle pill has made me very happy. Of course the first month has its challenges, but my body adjusted. Bleeding and spotting for the first two weeks and VERY tender breasts. I take the pill at 9pm and get rather warm at night. I kick all the covers on my spouse EVERY n ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
After reading all the comments regarding this drug I was extremely apprehensive to take it. I actually called my doctor's office back after my appointment in a paranoid state rambling about my fears of starting this drug. The nurse laughed and asked me to please stop reading comments about the drug and just try it. I have a history of Neurological issues and Migraines with Aura but I am also o ... Show Full Comment
