I am going on my third month on errin. I am unable to use regular bc pills due to the hormones rising my blood pressure. In the two full months that I have been on it, I have spotted like 4 times. Each time it is light but lasts for 7-12 days. Its no wonder you don't get pregnant on it...you cant have sex use your always bleeding!!

NO side effects at all. Understandably, the side effects of pregnancy, as stated by another post, and the side effects of this birth control are similar - because the ingredients in this pill trick your endocrine system and the rest of your body into thinking it is pregnant. Hence, no ovulation and thus, no periods. Breast feeding does the same thing. SO when a Gyn tells you to take this BC and br ... Show Full Comment
