    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 really have mixed feelings about this one. I took the OTC for 2 1/2 years. It made my periods very light and it even cleared up my acne. I am bad at taking the pill on time every day but it never failed me. On the other hand I did gain alot of weigt and just recently it has started causing me pregnancy like symptoms. My doctor just switched me to another birth coltrol to help me deal with this p ... Show Full Comment

    I started this during the summer of 2006. In December of 06, I got a little pink plus sign after I peed on the stick! lol Clearly didn't work for me, but I was happy while it was, as I didn't experience any negative side effects. I still feel blessed to have a beautiful girl, so I guess it worked out in my case.
