    I switched to Chateal after having the implant for a horrible year. I have not tried any other pill. I usually take it as directed. By Wednesday of the "no pill week" (4th week) I start bleeding like a regular period, but by Saturday it is just light bleeding/spotting. I usually stop bleeding completely after about 8 days. Very nice in its consistency. The only time I spot in between is ... Show Full Comment

    I have always had mental side effects with birth controls. I was afraid to try BC again, but did because I really didn't want to get pregnant. I have had little to no mental side effects (just a little emotional on the last week of pills). I also got a bonus of my debilitating cramps being knocked down to slightly annoying. I highly suggest this pill.

    No side effects or issues except hair shedding! I've tried many different bcp in the past and never had hair thinning. Switching to a new one.

    As far as its intended purpose (birth control) it seems to be working but the side effects have been a problem for me. I was on trinessa for 2 years with no problems but switched due to insurance / provider issues. I've only been taking chateal for 1.5 months but I've already noticed that my moods are out of my control. I get very angry very quickly, I cry for no good reason and these a ... Show Full Comment

    I've been using chanteal for 2months now. I use to take a different birth control but got switched to chanteal since the other one didn't help with my cramps. Now I have little to no cramps and my flow has lessened and my days are shorter the only things I have to complain about is acne and I don't really have mood swings it's just instead of being sad or getting upset I get angry ...
