I'm finishing up my 3rd month on this and I pretty much love it! My breasts have gotten noticeably fuller, it has had no effect on my libido, and my periods are more or less the same (they were normal flow, 4 days before bc).

Comment:
I have been on this for about four months now. The first month I had mild side effects- vaginal dryness and nausea. The dryness went away and I switched the time I was taking the pill to closer to when I ate and the nausea went away. Other than that, I have had no problems with it and have been very happy with the results.
