    I have been on it now for 3 weeks. I too have had the spotting. No head aches or cramping. Just seems like such a small pill to do such a Big job. The chewable part is throwing me for a loop. Kind of like a Flintstones Vitamin. Like the minty taste. Hve notices acne on my back and shoulders. Not happy about that!

    This is my first experience with birth control of any kind. It would appear to be effective (as I am not yet pregnant) but I am not entirely sure it is worth the side effects I am experiencing. I had a clockwork period (of 4 days) prior to taking the pill, but after my first pill pack I experienced a sparatic period lasting almost 2 weeks.

    I am on my second pack & love it so far. It's easy to take, minty & chewy which is a plus. Cut my periods from 7 days to 4 with just the 1st pack. Took away my really painful cramps, back aches & menstrual migraines. The only thing Im not fond of is a little bit of ache & some weight gain but overall I am very pleased & will continue to take it.

    Well, I'm not exactly sure if its working or not. This is my first form of north control I have ever taken so I'm not really sure what to look for. I have been really moody lately and my periods lasted the same as it always is. It's just such a small pill and when I chew it I don't feel like I'm getting enough or taking it right. At least its minty!
