I was happily on Aviane for 2 or 3 years, and switched mindlessly when my pharmacist asked if I wanted to try it for some reason (they weren't stocking Avaine anymore? They changed names?). Either way I wish I had said no, these past 3 months on this pill have been miserable. I start having PMS symptoms a week after my period.

It makes my stomach hurt for about an hour or so after I take it and if I am barely off time, taking it, it makes me bleed for days. Other than that, It's great!

I just had my Paragard IUD removed two months ago in favor or something that doesn't make me randomly spot or have cramps/backache. On this pill my periods went from a week to about five days and it's incredibly light! I'm not used to that, so it's nice. Overall, I'd recommend this BCP.
