This was my first time on birth control. I had always chosen not to take it because of the health risks that can come along with it but being in a new relationship, I wanted to be safe.

My boyfriend and I decided t ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Aviane (Brand Name: Alesse, Lutera, Sronyx etc.) while on this birth control for 4 years my period was light, came on the same day every month, reduced my cramping and acne... very good for the most part.
