    I have been on this pill for over a year. I have used both generics (Amethia and Camerse) as well as Lo Seasonique (my pharmacy keeps switching it! The hazard of being uninsured I suppose- I'm at their mercy.) anyway, I have not had any problems at all. The first month I got my normal period, the second it was spotty, but since then only had them every three months with no breakthrough. I have ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking this generic drug for a couple years. At first everything was fine. Now after year 2 I am finding I spot in between periods, I have a constant headache and terrible cramps the week of my period, and I have put on added weight since taking this pill. The thing that bothers me is that I can't seem to lose the weight. I can exercise and diet for a month and no change. I realiz ... Show Full Comment

    I started this BC in late January or early February and so far, i love. i did have a long, weird mood swing that my boyfriend pointed out. my ance stayed about the same; a few breakouts here and there every so often. I'm 2 weeks away from starting my first period since being on it. Hopefully, it shortens mine!

    I have taken Amethia for almost a year and 6 months now and have had no problems. The first 3 months I had extreme breast soreness and break outs I had really high libido and no problems with acne or break outs. The next three months the breast soreness went away and not quite as high libido but still good. I have yet to have a problem with bleeding or spotting before this pill I would usually hav ...

    Comment:
    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
