    still had monthly periods (took pill for 9 months before getting rid of them). Depression, mood swings, irritability, cramps, breakouts. TERRIBLE! I did not have this problem with seasonique.

    I started taking Amethia about three months ago. No mood swings, headaches, or weight gain. My only complaint would be breast tenderness that lasted only the first month. Still having regular periods, but they are shorter and lighter. Has also helped prevent acne.

    I did not experience any spotting with Amethia (which shocked me since Mirena made me spot constantly). The only major side effect I noticed was that my acne flaired up, worse than when I went through puberty. I went today to see my NP and she said the higher levels of testosterone leads to this side effect. I did not gain weight or experience mood swings. I decided to switch because the acne was ...
