I haven't been on this pill for very long, just a few weeks, but it's going good so far.

I have never spotted or bled long on this pill. I had to take it because anything with estrogen could interfere with my SSRI.

I started taking this pill about a year ago and it worked for a little while. Soon I found myself crying for no reason and having crazy mood swings. I get mad at every little thing. My periods are a lot heavier now than they were before I went on this pill. I would only recomend this pill if it was a persons only option. I plan on switching pills the next time I go to my doctor.

Comment:
My doctor put me on this birth control due to me having servere headaches & irregular periods. After about 5 days on this pill I woke up in the middle of the night with severe cramping & bleeding. The bleeding was so bad that I couldn't even make it to the bathroom without bleeding thru my tampon & over night pad - I bled all over my bathroom floor. This continued for 2-3 weeks ...
