    Medication was for my daughter to help control mentral cycle & flow. She had fewer cycles but they were unpredictable time wise. However, she stopped taking the pills 4 wks ago and now has breast mastisis (breast infection). She is (currently) unaware of the severity of the breast mastisis if the antibiotics don't clear this infection immediately...I was wondering if anyone knew if stoppin ... Show Full Comment

    I am taking this drug for endometriosis. I've expirenced some dizziness and lightheadedness. I also have expirenced pain in my hips and lower back. I've had difficulty sleeping and not sleeping well once I do fall asleep. The endometrial pain seems to have decreased. It's so far been the best drug treatment I've had for endometriosis.

    I was started on this pill because of fybroids. Since taking this pill, I have gained weight, started bleeding again after not bleeding for a month and a half, and I became a total "basket case" - my emotions were out of control. I am going back to the doctor to state my case and let her know I have stopped taking the pill. Bleeding is stopping and I am myself once again.

    My doctor gave me this to stop my heavy bleeding as my blood count was way down. Since taking it (since early-2008), I have turned into an old man; my skin and hair have become thin, greasy scalp and shrinking breasts. Yuck. Now my doctor says I have fibroids on my uterus and wants me to have a hysterectomy. I wish I could have my periods back and just take iron pills. If I stop taking the pi ... Show Full Comment
