I've been on this pill for my third month and it's worked great. It's the first and only BCP I've ever taken. I had some mild spotting the first month but now my periods are short and light. Also, the best part is that it has almost completely cleared up my acne! I had no wieght gain or cramps...this pill is great!

I had no problems for many years, but no ... Show Full Comment
