I am sending an update from my review on 10/24/11. I previously posted that his drug caused me headaches, severe cramps, and continuous bleeding while taking it. I failed to add that I had immense hair loss over the 3 months I took Amethia. I went to a dermatologist last week regarding my hair loss.

I was on Seasonique for 9 months, and felt great. No side effects, no breakthrough bleeding. My pharmacy switched me to generic Amethia as soon as it was available. I have had horrible headaches and have been spotting the entire 2nd month of the pack-Don't know when it will stop! I normally have very light periods. (I have NEVER had breakthrough bleeding with ANY bc pill I have been on).
