    I've been taking aviane for about 10 days now, and i have to say it is quite wonderful, the only side effect that I have had so far is an increase in breast size which is quite wonderful actually. No weight gain, no acne, about the same sex drive. All in all this is a wonderful birth control.

    I began taking Aviane in January and it is now October, so for between 9 and 10 months now. As for the positive, I'm not pregnant (I do take the pill every day within the same hour)! It has helped slightly with acne (I used to have mild-moderate acne) in that it usually goes away for a month or two then comes back for about three weeks surrounding the week of my period. I had spotting for the ... Show Full Comment

    I've been taking aviane for two years now. I have not had any problems with this pill and overall, I'm quite happy with it. But, I have not experienced lighter periods or less cramping.. I'm not sure if that's normal.. anyway, other than that aviane has been pretty good!

    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. I started taking this and it made me feel irritable, tired, and gave me acne. My skin was completely clear before taking this medication and this morning I threw this junk in the trash. My boyfriend and I decided t ... Show Full Comment
