    I switched from Ortho-Evra to Cryselle about 10 months ago. My doctor explained about the breakthrough bleeding especially if I was going to use it to skip periods. However, due to interactions with other medications (mainly absorption the of Cryselle), I have just experienced a month-long period and have now broken out with acne from chin to shoulders to back.

I LOVED this bc - no noticed side effects whatsoever. Ive had migraines since I was 8 years old and this seemed to help lesson the frequency of them. My skin was clearer while using this also, I didn't gain any weight and my periods ... Show Full Comment

Now i have to wait 7 days to determine if the month long bleeding will stop. i am fearful that i may have turne ... Show Full Comment
