I'm 27 have been been on birth control since I was 16 for irregular, painful periods. I've been on LOTS of different brands over the years...yaz, ortho tri-cyclin lo, alesse, aviane, just to name a few.

I agree with the other woman who reviewed this. I am 21 and was scared to start it after I saw other people's reviews. I was pleasantly surprised. I have had no side effects whatsoever. I'm glad I gave it a chance!
