I was taking this pill for birth control, so I suppose as I never got pregnant it was TECHNICALLY effective. HOWEVER - This medication ruined my relationship with my boyfriend and TANKED my grades. I was on it for about 4 months. Long enough to go into a severe depression, with crazy mood swings, but all of them negative. I'd go from being okay to sobbing in a second, or I'd go into a blin ...

I was petrified after reading the horror stories on here. But I'm the weeks in and it has been fantastic. MUCH lighter period.

I'm going to college in 3 weeks and I have a boyfriend, so we're somewhat sexually active. So I decided to ask my Gynecologist to go birth control & she gave me syeda. I HATE IT SO MUCH! Me and my boyfriend are careful but using the pill we decided not use a condom - 2 weeks later my period doesn't come - I start freaking out and a week later it comes & the cramps are unbearabl ...

I've only been on this for 2 months. My first period on it was extremely light to nonexistent, more like spotting. The second period has yet to show up and I've had two negative pregnancy tests taken a week and a half apart. FREAKING OUT. Anyone else not having a period on this stuff?
