I have been taking this for about one year. My periods are super light. I never need more than a panty liner. If fact, I have completely missed 2 periods in the past 4 months(no I am not pregnant). I have not gained any weight on these pills and haven't noticed any other side effects.

I love this birth control pill. At first i was alittle if-y about taking it after reading a few bad reviews but i haven't had any problems with it. the first month was alittle wierd...spotting and mood swings, but that quickly went away by the second moneth. it also shortened my periods and got rid of my cramping. i'm on my 6 month now and i am not experiencing any problems.
