Comment:
I have been taking Amethia for several months. I have not had any type of nipple or vaginal discharge like other users, but I have gained some weight in my breasts and belly. My bra size is a cup size bigger than when I started taking Amethia. I actually learned about this pill from a friend when asking about her breast size increase. I thought she had gotten implants, but she said that the ... Show Full Comment

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.

Comment:
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.

Comment:
I was on Seasonique for over a year and then my pharmacy switched me to Amethia. WORST BC PILL EVER. If your pharmacy gives it to you, hand it back before even leaving.

I started spotting around week 8, which turned into light bleeding weeks 9-11 and now I'm on my "off week" when I get ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been taking this contraceptive for over 2 years now and I have never been more satisfied with a pill. I have taken a few different brands and I am the happiest with this one. I spotted the first month or two and then BARELY had a period every 3 months since.
