I've not gotten pregnant and I have had no periods for about a year now. That was initially a bit scary and a side-effect that I was not warned about prior to starting this pill, but upon internet research I have learned that I am far fr ... Show Full Comment

    I have taken this birth control for 6 years now. I have not experienced any side effects except for the fact that my menstrual cycle in almost non-existent now (which is wonderful). I have taken advantage of discount programs the company has offered and it has help absorb the cost of my monthly prescription.

    I have been on this pill for about two years. Previously I was on Loestrin 24 fe until the switch. I have been on birth control since I was 15. I am 19 now and it breaks my heart to realize that the EXTREME anxiety, depression, mood swings, headaches, numbing and tingling feet and hands, is ALL this pill to blame. I have had several fainting spells and didn't think it had anything to do with t ... Show Full Comment

    I've been on this pill for about 16 months (January 2014-present), and it's the only birth control I've tried. I got on it because I was about to get married. Positives: personally, it's easy for me to set an alarm and take it every day. When you order it comes with a 3-month supply, which is helpful for me. My period is now essentially non-existent; sometimes still get cramps, bu ... Show Full Comment
