Comment:
I started taking Estrostep at 17, and am currently 22. So it's been a good 5 years. I could not be happier with this birth control. It did not make me gain weight, it gave me very light periods (with only minor cramping about 24 hours beforehand,) and better skin.

Comment:
I've been on Estrostep off and on for 12 years (discontinued it 3 times in order to get pregnant with my 3 beautiful children). I always come back to this pill because not only is it effective (my hubby and I are quite fertile together and I've never gotten pregnant while on Estrostep), but it has reduced my horrible period to nearly nothing, just 1-2 days of very light bleeding, and allev ...
