So I thought I got my period early, but at the end of the 3rd month. I have my period. I've had major cramps ... Show Full Comment

I love this pill! it comes in 3 month packs and you only get your periods once at the end. I never had spotting and I had easy short periods.

Ladies, DO NOT TAKE AMETHIA. I HAVE HAD MY PERIOD FOR OVER A MONTH. Just fork over the extra cash for Seasonique, it is absolutely worth it. From the mood swings, nausea, cramps, crying, and dizziness, to the Constant need to buy tampons, Amethia is BY FAR THE WORST BIRTH CONTROL I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with.

This has been a nightmare. If I miss ONE pill I get my period for 2 weeks. I was on Camrese before and loved it, my pharmacy switched me to this and I'm calling the doctor first thing to switch back. This 2 week period has happened twice in the 4 months I've taken it. Horrible. Do not waste your time with this useless generic.
