While on this medication I had frequent breakthrough bleeding. I also had a horrible allergic reaction constituting hives ALL over my body due to what my doctors decided was a "bad pack."

Comment:
Was given this because of low hormones, less side effects, and also to stop ovarian cysts. I've been on it 5 months, noticed a little weight gain, but other than that no other side effects. Effective birth control. Acne control is alright, still get breakouts at that time of the month.
