    Comment:
    I'm reading a lot of the comments and it seems like many women just give up in the first pack. I have been using this for a year now and I have no complaints. I did bleed for about 3-4 weeks but that's because it has to thin the lining for your uterus (one of its methods to prevent pregnancy). After that I only bled every three months for about 4 days with minima crapping. I did have acne ... Show Full Comment

    Today, is only day 5 of the medication and I had to visit the emergency room for a painfully tingling numbness in my left arm(I'm still inot pain). I thought I was having a stroke. I left work and drove myself to the nearest hospital. These physicians get so complacent that they diagnosis everyone with the same thing and send you on your way with steroids/pain meds. I know I am a healthy 37 wi ... Show Full Comment

    I started taking this pill to decrease spotting, and help with some minor acne I was experiencing with a different pill. I have been taking this pill for a year now, and have never experienced acne as bad as this in my life. I break out every week, and believe it has even contributed to a few cold sore breakouts (which I have been getting once every few years since childhood; on this pill, occurre ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    As a form of birth control, it is effective. However, I couldn't stand the side effects. I started taking it a month before I got married, and it killed my libido. I would constantly be spotting 2 out of the 3 months with cramping (who wants to take ibuprofen every day, anyone?), and during the last week, my period would be HORRENDOUSLY heavy (I bled through a tampon, a pad, and my underwear a ...

    Did not care for it at all. A lot of spot bleeding at intimate times. Very embarrassing. Lots of cramping, bloating and back acne. I didn't resume the treatment. I went back on my old birth control
