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.

Comment:
Lessina is the best pill I've been on. Since I started taking it almost 2 years ago, my periods have been significantly lighter and shorter, as well as less painful. No weight or mood side effects either. I'd strongly recommend this over Yaz or Ortho.

Comment:
very satisfied with this pill. I have experienced very few side effects and no weight gain at all. I do believe this medication enhances my irritiablity at certain times of the month, but other than that, I can not complain.
