    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 has been amazing, no weight gain, no mood swings, and even help my Acne problem. I do not want to change BC so crossing my fingers that my body doesn't get use to the pill.

My headaches are much better (I coupled preventative accupuncture treatment with my bc pill ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking Amethia for several months. I have not had any type of nipple or vaginal discharge like other users, but I have gained some weight in my breasts and belly. My bra size is a cup size bigger than when I started taking Amethia. I actually learned about this pill from a friend when asking about her breast size increase. I thought she had gotten implants, but she said that the ... Show Full Comment
