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!
