I took this pill for one month; when the period week came along I had severe cramping, so bad I couldn't walk. The following month was filled with all kinds pains in my abdomen and lower rib cage. Turned out I developed an ovarian cyst that burst and was leaking fluid into my body cavity that was causing the pains. I'm on Sprintec now with no problems.

I do not have an increased appetite, but I feel like I'm retaining a lot of water and it is making my stomach look so much bigger. I really do not like this side effect and I was wondering if anyone who has been on this pill could comment on this problem. Does this go away after a few weeks, or will it continue to ...

I was on this birth control for 6 months and it worked very well for me. The only time I had break through bleeding was when I was on an antibiotic. That month's cycle was all screwed up so I used alternative birth control. Otherwise, it cleared up my acne. I stopped breaking out completely. I highly recommend it if you have had any adverse effects from higher dose birth control (which wa ... Show Full Comment
