Cramps have disappeared completely, my periods don't last as long (used to be for a full 6-7 days, now it's about 4.) and my daily hormonal headaches don't occur nearly as often. However, I've definitely had dramatic mood swings overall. I had hoped these would regulate after a while, but stress and emotional episodes seem to have increased.

First birth control method I have ever used, am 21. Been using it for 4 months now, it is easy to use only because I don't have trouble remembering to take it on time every day.

Comment:
I was on Yaz for three years and switched because of the negative press and my friend taking it had her Gallbladder removed. All my friends switching off Yaz all tried something different. The only side effect I had taking this (for about five months) was horrible acne on my face and back. Major change from when I was on yaz (not one pimple). Now changing to Tri-sprintec.

I have been taking Lessina for almoat 3 months, this is the first birth control I have taken. I've noticed I've been more irritable at times, and major breast tenderness and weight gain. It's effective, but I might change to another pill, the mood swings are overwhelming at times.
