    Omg I thought I was the only one! I had been on Tri-Sprintec for almost 3 years and I wanted something that would make my periods stop especially because we were going places every summer and having a period was getting in the way of enjoying my summers. My doctor perscribed Amthethia and I was stoked the first month because I had no period, but I had some spotting my second month and now bleeding ... Show Full Comment

    I was taking microgestin and my doctor switched me to amethia. I was okay with it because I didn't mind having a period every 3 months. After a month, I decided after I finished this pack I was going to go back to microgestin because it made me comfortable to know I was going to get my period every month since I was sexually active. I took the 3 months worth of amethia and when it was time to ... Show Full Comment

    I do not recommend this birth control to anyone. I was on camerese and like other women, my pharmacist switched me o amethia. Since taking the pill I have had a lot of break through bleeding, bloating, cramps, acne, and terrible mood swings. I would not recommend this pill to anyone!

    Nine weeks ago my pharmacy switched my prescription from Camrese to this Amethia and it has been nothing but problems. I have been annoyingly spotting for the last seven weeks on and off. Horrible cramping, double over in pain from it and the nausea and vomiting is even worse. I never had any of these problems while on Camrese. I knew it wasn't right to switch my birth control like that and I ... Show Full Comment

    I have taken this birth control for a year now and I have experienced nothing but horrible side effects including water retention, bloating, acne, spotting for two months after having been on it for 4 months. It's just been horrible. Also another downside is that not having a period for 3 months may be a relief to some people, but it just leaves me very uncomfortable. It did it's job in th ...
