I hate this pill! I have been spotting ever since I started it. I was told that the spotting would stop after the first 3 months- as if that isnt long enough, it still hasnt stopped! Just 3 days after I started the pill, I started breaking out in acne like I did when I went through puberty! Its awful being a grown woman and looking like a preteen!! Im also often nauseated, and super cranky.

I have not gotten pregnant, but to my husband's dismay, I'm going to have to result to barrier methods (or buy stock in TAMPAX, as I have gone through ... Show Full Comment
