Comment:
Was on this pill for 9 months and can't take it anymore. I thought the initial side effects would get better the longer I took it, but instead they only worsened.

I've tried many birth control pills and with this one, I have not gained weight, my acne has been under control and my mood swings are average (as they were without any pill). I have been taking this for about 2 years now.
