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!

Ladies, if you want to risk having zero libido, gain weight, be hungry 24/7, have month long heavy painful periods then this is the drug for you. It may work for some but it made my entire life miserable. Not worth lowering the amount of periods a year at all.

I'm 17 and I've been on Amethia Lo for 3 months.Yes, in the first two I had a lot of spotting and bleeding especially the last week of the first pack.However, I haven't become pregnant even though my bf finishes inside me every time.As far as effectiveness goes.....it really works.I would reccomend this bc pill above other extened cycle bc pills.

My insurance company switched me to this after being on Lo Seasonique for about a year. By the end of my first pack I began getting bad migraines. Don't know why since I had no problems with the brand name.
