I love this birth control and will never switch! I'm not hormonal, have extremely light periods and ZERO PMS symptoms.

I took this pill (the name brand) for 6 years without ever experiencing any side effects. It did take me about a year and a half to become pregnant after stopping this pill.

I had horrible side effects and stopped taking it after 2 weeks.
