This is my second time being on it and things have gotten worse. It's caused my period to be very irregular and very heavy with a LOT of blood clots. It's also causing severe itching that woke me up at night and kept me from getting sleep. I thought it ... Show Full Comment

    This is the second bcp I've taken the first was a mess, had my period for two months straight. I would almost rather that, with this pill I'm soo moody all the time, i have cramps that feel like contractions almost every day and i get the worst migraines. Plus the bleeding is HEAVY for a full week. i go through almost a whole box of tampons and pads for one period.
