I switched to this pill because I didn't want to get a period every month. It works perfectly, I have 4 periods per year and they are short and light. I love this pill! I haven't had any negative side effects, either.

I've been taking the pill for 3 years now, and have never had any problems before. Recently though, I've been experiencing what feel like pregnancy symptoms. This could be because i'm a college student, and stress has made these symptoms come out. Or maybe the pill isn't working...i have no idea.

I switched from Tri-Sprintec which is the generic form of Ortho to Lo Ovral. I switched because I had heavy bleeding for three weeks on the Sprintec. I have been taking Ovral for about two weeks and haven't had any side affects aside from some spotting and cramps. I guess we'll have to see in the next months but so far so good!!
