I haven't had many problems with this drug and my periods only last 4 days or so which is nice, but I have also had weird discharge like the previous reviewer. It isn't constant but when it happens it's bothersome and uncomfortable. I am thinking about switching because of this. At first, I thought I might have an infection but I tried yeast infection medication thinking it was that an ... Show Full Comment
