This is perfect! It did not make me gain weight at all. The only difference I saw was my curves and boobs. I've stayed around the same weight and it made my periods only 3 days. It is definitely recommended!

Comment:
Although this pill did a great job at keeping me from getting pregnant as well as relieving my debilitating monthly cramps, it caused me to feel nauseated every single day, all day.
