I have been on Amethia for almost 4 years now, switched from Tri-nessa which my body had gotten use to taking so it wasn't working anymore.

Amethia will effect everyone in different ways, I know people that it d ... Show Full Comment

My doctor recommended Seasonique as a bc pill due to A) my active lifestyle and heavy periods and B) severe migraines related to my cycle. My pharmacy/insurance switched out Seasonique for Amethia.

I thought she had gotten implants, but she said that the ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I started taking this pill about 7-8 weeks ago. No headaches, breakouts or mood swings and no real weight gain. Switched from Seasonique to save money and because I was having weird spotting with it. My breasts have been sore, firm and enlarged (almost like I was pregnant), but it seems to come and go somewhat. I'm still probably at least and and a half cup sizes larger than I was earlier ...
