I have taken Amethia for almost a year and 6 months now and have had no problems.

This is the first time I take any form of birth control, so from the start I did my research of the many types and brands. At the end of the day I chose Seasonique-lo, but because of a miss-communication with my Dr I got Amethia (or rather the generic for the regular Seasonique) Right away I looked up reviews and I was honestly freaked out by the many negative reviews here. I decided to go ahead a ... Show Full Comment

I was taking Amethia for 1,5 month and I started to experience spotting like blood cloths. During 1 week it got worse and I started to have vaginal bleeding as a regular menstruation. I am gonna call to my doctor. I gained 12 pounds and my mood like a crazy.

Comment:
I have never had any trouble with birth control and after having my last child my MD gave me this prescription. I began bleeding at week 7 and have been bleeding for 2 weeks.
