Comment:
First off, any reviews on a birth control that have not been used for over 3 months don't have the necessary information to conclude whether or not it works. There are many side effects with any birth control within the first few months. Once your body adjusts then consumers can rate their satisfaction.

I've also suffered from moderate acne since I was young so I asked my doctor for Yaz. The pharmacy ended up giving me Vestura (which I was a little upset about because of the reviews) but i ...
