Absolutely no side effects (besides the perks of lighter periods and clearer skin).I switched to this pill after a couple of years on the birth control patch and I'm really glad I did.

I have been taking Ortho-Cyclen for 2 1/2 years after switching off of Yasmine (which I hated) Its been a very effective pill, but this month I started spotting and it seems that it happens sometimes after taking this pill for a few years.
