    I have been on this pill for a little over two months now and my experience has been horrible. I don't know anymore when I get my period. I am always spotting sometimes it's light for about 3 days then I get four days heavy bleeding. Then it goes back to spotting light for three days again... this is non stop. This is crazy I am changing to another type of birth control.

    I took this pill for a month. It was so awful that I can't take it any more. The mood swings are 10 times worse than I've ever experienced before. I eat really healthy and I'm very active but had so much bloating and a fair amount of weight gain. I had less cramping but 7 days of heavy bleeding. The nausea was unbearable most of the time. While this pill was effective, the side effects ... Show Full Comment

    My OB/GYN placed me on this pill because I was at risk for a stroke while being on estrogen birth controls. I have been taking this medication for 2 months with no side effects: migraines have stopped, no acne, no mood swings, no weight gain, no spotting, and sex drive is still intact. The first month of taking this pill my period was extremely light (almost nonexistant) and lasted only two days. ... Show Full Comment

    I started taking Lyza birth control because the combined pill I was on previously (Aubra) was causing me to get migraines. Since I've been on Lyza I have noticed that I have been VERY bloated. Also I have never had back acne before and now I do, but it is very mild. Not to mention I have had one period since I have been on this pill. I got a period after the first month and I have taken severa ... Show Full Comment

    I have been using this birth control for over a year and I have not had any side effects. I feel great and continue to workout and eat very clean. I doubt that a pill can cause someone to fill bloated or gain weight...I would rethink what people are eating because food is a major factor for a lot of side effects. Eat clean and workout and you will be fine :) it has worked for me.
