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.

I hate Amethia!!! The first month taking this pill was fine. Since starting the second pack, my mood has been all over the place.

Do not take this! After becoming sick while on amethia I gained 6 lbs, I'm not saying it was from the pill but afterwards I was unable to lose any weight at all. Also after missing 1 pill, I graciously received my period for 3 straight weeks. It also made me very emotional, literally I'd be in tears over anything. It was also supposed to "reduce my migraines" which went from arou ... Show Full Comment

I was on Seasonique for over a year, with no problems at all. Then my pharmacy decided to stop carrying it, resulting to me getting on Amethia. I was not even on it for a MONTH before I stopped taking it and scheduled an emergancy appointment with my doctor. Upon getting on this medicine, I got a period that lasted for 2 weeks! The pain that came with it was so terrible, I thought I was having a m ... Show Full Comment
