I started using the name brand Lo Seasonique in 2010 and from the very beginning, I experienced no problems or side effects. No cramping, spotting, nausea, headaches, no cycle, etc. Just easy-breezy care-free living! Was later switched to Amethia Lo and got the SAME results! I have been on several others in the past and this is hands down the best BC I've taken!
