    I loved this bc! I used it for 7 almost 8 years and never had any problems. I did gained weight but I think is more of a combination of life style choices and the pill than the pill itself.

    This was my first time with birthcontrol, so my doctor figured this was my best option. For the second month, i had spotting all month, and knew somebody with the same experience.

    I was on this for six months and loved it, but had to switch to Desogen, which I hated. I tried to switch back to it a few days ago, but my blood pressure was a little high and they gave me Ortho Micronor that is only 92-99% effective and I will not be taking it. It cleared up my skin and I didn't get pregnant.

    My doctor prescribed this for birth control, and while that part worked, I had other issues with the pill. I only took it for 6 months, but during that time my periods were coming every two weeks, and lasting for two weeks, and were also very painful. Also, it really reduced my sex drive and made me very moody. Since coming off it, everything has been back to normal.
