I was on this medication for approximately 8 months before needing to switch to a different BC pill. I loved that my doctor was letting me take it back to back (skipping placebos). My skin overall was pretty clear however would have bouts where it would flare up and break out a lot on my chest. However I began spotting constantly after 6months of taking it.

Comment:
I wanted to get on the pill for 2 main reasons: inconsistent periods and birth control. My doctor prescribed Sprintec, but upon reading the reviews, the was no way in hell I was going to put that product in my system. I asked my doctor for other options and she gave me a list of birth control pills that Kaiser has in their pharmacy. I reviewed each one in detail and kept coming back to Aviane. Alt ...
