As birth control it works since I've been taking it for a year and not gotten pregnant, however the side effects are terrible. My migraines have gotten so much worse. I used to get them a few times a year. Now its up to two or three every time I get my period. Also my sex drive completely gone. And it has done nothing to lighten or shorten my week long period. I will be switching to a differen ... Show Full Comment
